The Halifax Regional Municipality will be enforcing the winter parking ban overnight.

Any vehicles left parked on city streets between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 3 risk being ticketed or towed.

In addition to the overnight ban, vehicles can be ticketed or towed at any time of day or night if they get in the way of snow clearing operations under the province's Motor Vehicle Act.

Residents are asked to make sure vehicles aren't blocking sidewalks. Those hanging out of driveways or parked on the sidewalk risk being damaged by snow removal equipment and could also be ticketed.

Haligonians should move any planters, lawn decorations, sports equipment and other portable objects away from sidewalks. Mark any permanent structures or objects too big to move with reflectors that will stick out above the snow so crews can spot them.

The HRM is also reminding those heading out to shovel to not dump snow from your property onto the street or sidewalk.

"Think before you park this winter - it will help make the season a little easier on everyone," says the HRM in a news release.
