The City of Coquitlam’s snow plows cannot deliver their best service when cars are parked on roadways. When there is snow in the forecast, do not park on the street. All vehicles should be parked in a driveway, garage, carport or other area of their private property - this applies to residents in secondary suites as well. Landlords must provide areas for their residents to park off the street.
Additionally, each year from Nov. 1 to Mar. 15, the City implements parking restrictions in problematic and steep areas of Coquitlam to assist City crews to plow streets clear from curb-to-curb making the streets safer for winter driving during snow events.
Drivers and residents are asked to follow all posted parking restrictions on their street, and as indicated on street regulation signage at all locations within the City. This will prevent you from having to dig out your vehicle, and will also prevent you receiving a ticket or having your vehicle towed.
The City also activates a restriction every time snow is in the forecast on some streets until the end of the snow event and the streets are clear. Visit our Winter Wise webpage and look at the Parking Tab for details on which streets have the 'when declared' restriction, and sign up for our Winter Parking Restriction NotifyMe email.
