The City of Ottawa is getting ready to resume the enforcement of parking in excess of posted time limits, including 15-minute, one-hour, two-hour, three-hour and six-hour zones.

The rules will be back into effect starting June 29, however, parking control officers will issue warning notices to vehicles that are parked longer than the posted time limit for the first week. Officers will begin to issue tickets on Monday, July 6.

Until further notice, parking control officers will not enforce overtime parking on streets without signs.

"Parking enforcement ensures safety, traffic flow, emergency vehicle access and parking space availability as services begin to reopen and normal traffic patterns resume," says the city in a news release, Tuesday.

All other parking restrictions remain in effect, including no-stopping zones, no-parking zones, fire routes, accessible parking spaces and rules around sidewalks, driveways and fire hydrants. 

Parking restrictions also continue to be enforced in areas with pay-and-display machines.
