As Businesses Re-open, Be Mindful of These Parking Violations


As businesses begin to reopen under Step 2 of the provincial Roadmap to Reopen, the City of Sault Ste. Marie is reminding motorists that parking infractions will be enforced proactively by the Corps of Commissionaires, Sault Ste. Marie Police Service and Special Constables from NORPRO Security, a division of N1 Solutions Inc.  This includes metered and pay-and-display parking in the downtown area.

Motorists should keep the following in mind when parking vehicles in the city:

Sidewalks should not be blocked at any time of the year.
Vehicles should not be parked in designated fire routes.
Vehicles should not be parked in an accessible parking space unless a Ministry of Transportation accessible parking permit is displayed on the dashboard or sun visor with the permit number and expiry date clearly visible.
Under by-law 70-200-6 Schedule A, parking of vehicles on bicycle lanes on City streets including the newly created bicycle lanes is not permitted. Motorists found in violation may be issued a ticket. Please adhere to the No Parking signage.
Parking is not permitted on or partly on boulevards, especially on streets where bicycle lanes are present.
Vehicles should not be parked on city streets facing the wrong direction.
Vehicles should not be parked on private property without the consent of the owner or occupant.
Vehicles should not be parked within three metres of a fire hydrant.
Vehicles with expired license plates or without license plates are prohibited from parking on city streets.
If your vehicle is found to be in violation of any parking law and/or by-law, you may be issued a ticket and your vehicle may be towed at your expense.

  1. While Provincial and Federal governments ease the restrictions for shopping and dining, our local government in Sault Ste. Marie puts on another virus, “Paid Parking”, on us. Paid Parking should be abolished so that the shoppers don’t have to worry about getting tickets for parking. Why don’t the businesses complain to city hall to have it removed?
