Don’t leave your car parked on a Peterborough street overnight or it will be towed and you’ll pay a fine.

The City of Peterborough is advising residents that all vehicles must be removed from streets tonight (January 8) to facilitate snow clearing operations.

Snow clearing operations will begin at 11 p.m. on Monday and continue until 8 a.m. on Tuesday.

Vehicles must be off all streets, including streets in the downtown. Free overnight parking is permitted at all municipal parking lots, the King Street Parkade, and the Simcoe Parking Garage. Vehicles parked overnight at either parking garage can obtain a gate arm ticket upon entry to the garage to be used for a free transit trip home.

The fine for failing to remove vehicles from the street is $80 and the vehicle will be towed.

All vehicles north of Parkhill Road will be towed to Milroy Park located at 242 Milroy Drive, with all other vehicles being towed to Morrow Park located at 171 Lansdowne Street West.

All towed vehicles must be claimed on Tuesday. After 24 hours, all unclaimed vehicles will be towed to an impound yard at the owner’s expense.
