If you do not move your vehicle from the road when street cleaning is scheduled, you may receive a ticket and, in some cases, your vehicle will be towed.
A parking ban is in effect when Street Cleaning Community Signs with “No Parking” decals are placed around a community during Spring Clean-up. Any vehicle that has not been removed from the street in the area is subject to ticketing.
Vehicles are subject to be ticketed and towed if the small 3-feet high "No Parking" signs are placed along the road. They will be placed at least 12 hours prior to street sweeping. If vehicles are towed:
- The City of Calgary pays for towing if the vehicle can be taken to a nearby space.
- The vehicle owner pays the ticket, tow, and impound fee, if taken to a lot.
When the street cleaning signs are up and vehicles are still on the road, crews will sweep around vehicles.
