City issues overnight parking ban

The City Of Ottawa issued a ban on overnight parking today to ensure the proper removal of snow.

Parking on city streets between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. is not allowed without an on-street permit or cars will be ticketed subject to possible additional fines.

This restriction is in effect until roads are cleared and the city has issued another notice lifting the parking ban.

Overnight parking restrictions come into effect when Environment Canada forecasts predict snowfall over 7 cm from Nov. 15 to Apr. 1.

Driving conditions continued to worsen throughout the day as numerous collisions are being reported across the city, including collisions near Laurier Avenue at O’Connor Street, and Slater and Metcalfe Streets.

Environment Canada has also issued a freezing rain warning for Ottawa.
