Cranbrook, BC (November 24, 2016) - Due to traffic congestion during the winter months on 24th Avenue South from 2nd Street South to 1st Street South, and 23rd Avenue North from 2nd Street North to 4th Street North, because of snowbanks which are left by snow plowing activities, Council resolved in November 2009 to prohibit parking in these areas from December 1st to March 31st every year. These restrictions are required to ensure free flow of traffic to and from the hospital, particularly for emergency vehicles.
This location will be patrolled on a regular basis by City of Cranbrook Bylaw Services, regardless of the weather or road conditions. The prescribed fine for being unlawfully parked in the posted area is $25.00.
