No parking means no parking, even on holiday: city

  • Print

It wasn't a holiday for everyone Monday.

Some Winnipeggers were slapped with tickets after confusion about parking rules on Louis Riel Day.

"Holiday or no holiday, it's business as usual," said Randy Topolniski, manager of regulations and compliance for the Winnipeg Parking Authority.

Meters were free Monday because of the holiday, but in no-parking and no-stopping zones, Monday was still considered a weekday.

Topolniski said most problems arose where drivers parked in those zones because they thought Monday would be considered an extension of the weekend.

"Even if it's a holiday, there's still activity going on. There's a reason the traffic engineers put those regulations in place," Topolniski said.

Drivers who feel they were unfairly issued tickets can ask for them to be reviewed for technical errors by the parking authority. Information on how to do so is available online at theparkingstore.winnipeg.ca.

Meters are always free Sundays and holidays, with two-hour free parking on Saturdays. Parking signage should be respected in all other areas, even during holidays.
