Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge have declared snow events starting at midnight and there’s an on-street parking ban starting at 11:59 p.m. Sunday for all three cities.
Environment Canada issued a special weather statement for Waterloo region, saying between 15 to 25 centimeters of snow is expected by the end of Sunday night.
According to the weather agency there will be periods of “quickly accumulating snow” that could lead to “slippery road conditions” and “low visibility at times.”
Kitchener’s parking ban will remain in effect for 24 hours and overnight parking exemptions are cancelled to allow for snow clearing.
During a snow event, the city’s tag-and-tow bylaw is activated.
“Residents are prohibited from parking their cars on city streets at any time when a snow event has been declared by the city. Bylaw enforcement staff may issue a ticket and tow the vehicle at the owner’s expense,” the city says.
Remove cars from streets by midnight
Meanwhile, the City of Waterloo says due to the snow event, residents must remove cars from streets by midnight tonight or risk being ticketed and towed.
The parking ban will remain in effect for 24 hours until midnight on Monday, Nov. 23.
Information will be posted in advance of midnight on Monday Nov. 23 as to whether the city will cancel the snow event and parking ban or extend if for another 24 hours.
“Removing cars from streets will facilitate safe and quick snow removal,” the city says, adding that overnight parking exemptions will not be permitted.
And the City of Cambridge is advising residents that any vehicles parked on-street during the snow event may be ticketed and/or towed.
Homeowners are also reminded not to push snow from their driveway onto the road.
