City of Saint John – Results of Last Night’s South Central Peninsula Parking Ban


Last night was the third overnight parking ban declared in the South Central Peninsula this year. While we did see some compliance, there were still a significant amount of people who did not move their vehicles off the street. As a result, 83 tickets were issued and 61 vehicles were towed.
To ensure safe and efficient snow clearing operations, parking ban enforcement will continue as the winter progresses and more bans are called. Those who remain parked on the street during an overnight parking ban will be ticketed and/or towed at the owner’s expense.
In the event of a parking ban, it is the responsibility of citizens to secure off-street parking and to seek information when the bans are declared. 

To prepare, we encourage residents to make alternate off-street parking arrangements in advance of any snowfall. For those living in the South Central Peninsula, a number of lots will be available, free of charge through the Saint John Parking Commission, to allow for off-street overnight parking access. Lot locations:
• Corner of Princess Street and Canterbury Street (entrance on Canterbury Street)
• Corner of Duke and Sydney Street
• Peters Street
• Carmarthen Street (Vineyard Church)
• Mecklenburg Street at Wentworth 
• Corner of Charlotte and Queen Street at Key Industries (entrance on Queen Street)
• Water Street at Coast Guard (behind Coast Guard building)
We thank citizens for their cooperation as crews work hard to clear the snow and keep our streets safe.
