The City of Prince Albert is warning motorists this week that they’ll be quick to ticket and tow vehicles that are in the way of snow removal operations.

 

The City of Prince Albert plans on more readily ticketing and towing vehicles in the way of snow removal operations.

“Ticketing and towing has always been an enforcement option, but what we are seeing is that there is not enough compliance, ” Mayor Greg Dionne said in a release.

“There are too many vehicles remaining parked on the street and snow plows have to go around. If we want clear streets we all have to do our part.”

Dionne’s stance reiterates that of council as a whole, who have urged during recent city council meetings for stricter enforcement.

“No Parking” signs are put up after 5 p.m., at least 12 hours in advance of snow clearing operations, allowing residents adequate opportunity to move their vehicles, a city press release reads.

If a vehicle remains in the way of snow removal operations they will be given a $25 ticket ($10 if paid early), a $100 towing fee (plus additional charges for things like winching), and $50 for every day the vehicle is in the compound.

Vehicles are towed to PA Autowreckers, who can be contacted at 306-953-5800.
