People will have to obtain written permission from the municipality first to park vehicles in municipal areas other than specifically designated areas. An application for consent form for this purpose can be obtained from the municipality.

Vehicles may also not be parked in any public road within the municipal area for a period beyond that indicated on a road sign relevant to the specific area.

No dealer or seller of a vehicle may park, or allow to be parked, a vehicle on the verge of a public road within the municipal area which is advertised for sale or for rental.

Owners of heavy vehicles, trailers or semi-trailers or a trailer not attached to a vehicle should also know that such vehicles may not be parked for an uninterrupted period exceeding two hours on public roads, except for places reserved for such parking within the municipal area.

The Bylaw also addresses many other parking issues such as laws pertaining to taxis and buses and clamping and impounding of cars.
