Working With Your Community
The Toronto Parking Enforcement uses a variety of posted signs, ticketing and impounding to enhance safety and keep drivers and cyclists notified.
Keeping Toronto Moving
Parking Enforcement Officers patrol 24 hours a day, seven days a week on foot, by bicycle and in vehicles to ensure compliance with city by-laws. We use a combination of information sharing, ticketing and impounding to enhance safety and convenience for all users of our roads.
In many instances, posted signs notify drivers of parking regulations. Whenever possible, officers may inform motorists how to park legally and avoid a ticket. A parking ticket may be issued, which imposes a fine on the registered owner of the vehicle. The final step is to tow and impound the offending vehicle. There is no waiting period before towing a vehicle for a parking violation on city streets.
Drivers leaving their vehicles in bus stops, no stopping zones, no standing zones, rush hour routes or parking illegally around schools will not be warned. These vehicles will be ticketed and towed immediately.
Parking Enforcement Officers also respond to parking complaints received from the community. Call 416-808-2222 for service.
