Parking enforcement reminders

Friday, February 7, 2020

The City of Sault Ste. Marie is reminding the public that parking infractions outside regular business hours are enforced by the Sault Ste. Marie Police Service and Special Constables from NORPRO. NORPRO is the private security firm involved as part of a one-year pilot program.

Motorists should keep the following in mind when parking vehicles in the city:

  • Under By-law 77-200-5(14), parking of vehicles on city streets is not permitted from November 1 to April 30 between midnight and 6 a.m.
  • Sidewalks should not be blocked at any time.
  • Vehicles should not be parked in designated fire routes.
  • Vehicles should not be parked in an accessible parking space unless a Ministry of Transportation accessible parking permit is displayed on the dashboard or sun visor with the permit number and expiry date clearly visible.
  • Vehicles should not be parked on city streets facing the wrong direction.
  • Vehicles should not be parked on private property without the consent of the owner or occupant.
  • Vehicles should not be parked within three metres of a fire hydrant.
  • Vehicles with expired license plates or without license plates are prohibited from parking on city streets. 

If your vehicle is found to be in violation of any parking law and/or by-law, you may be issued a ticket and your vehicle may be towed at your expense.
