  1. Lol. That’s like justifying parking in a hanicapp stall by saying there’s no close parking spots…. sorry to tell you OP, the rules still apply to you, even the inconvenient ones lol

  2. Look, they have to plow. If a whole street is full of parked cars you’re wasting their time.

    P.S. There’s been notices everywhere about the last few days. Pay attention!

    If you don’t watch the news or listen to the radio or notice the PARKING BAN notices on ETS bus displays (aka you live under a rock), that’s on you.

    • Plus all the giant flashing signs all over the city.

    • Cameron D. Loutitt when you agree to drive, you agree to follow the rules, even if you don’t like them. You can either not drive, follow the rules, or face the consequences.

    • You know what it’s called when you’re captive to a set of restraints that you can’t do anything about?

    • Cameron D. Loutitt being part of a society.

    • No, society is a group of communities that interact with each other, and has nothing to do with restrictions or restraints. To think that way must mean you don’t think it’s possible to change society. I mean, what else is thinking that being part of society means being captive to a set of restraints that you can’t do anything about mean? Considering the citizens of society are conditioned to be helpless victims though, it makes sense why you would think such a way.

    • Aaron Detka No, everyone who gets a parking ticket should just ignore it, because it’s a claim of ownership over their life, and an invalid one at that. The entire system is broken, and so is people’s way of thinking about it. 1. There’s nothing wrong with parking somewhere even though others don’t want you to park there, as long as you’re not harming anyone and 2. Stealing from people is never right, and just because it’s called a fine doesn’t make stealing fine. And euphemise it all you want, but that’s exactly what tickets are: legalized theft.

    • Also, I never think the city should do anything for me. Ever. Ever ever ever. The only thing the State owes me is my freedom, and I don’t expect anything else from it.

    • Gotta love when people poison the well and neglect to address anything I’ve said. Come on now people, I have made points, so address them.

    • The system is very broken Cameron D. Loutitt. But many are to blind to see or too afraid to stand up and do something about it. Also not one of us is actually free. We are all paid slaves contributing to a broken system run by greedy halfwits.

    • Am I the only one that thinks Cameron D. Loutitt should hook up with this chick??? Lol you seem to share the same level of cluelessness…..

    • Jennifer Broadhead Thanks for giving me hope. I knew I wasn’t the only one who gets it. It’s hard for people not to be blind and to stand up though, when their head is buried in the sand. It makes sense though, as it’s easier to feel safe while attached to a broken system, than it is to let go of the broken system and venture into the unknown. Even if that attachment means your head is buried and your ass is exposed for whomever to come take advantage of that.

    • Charlene Piche What is a law? What is a right? What is a wrong? What’s the difference between the two? How can you know? Can you turn a wrong into a right? What happens when you do right actions, and what happens when you do wrong actions? How does the law make something right, and another thing wrong? Where do laws come from? Who has the right to enforce laws? What is freedom? How are laws and freedom correlated? Why is breaking the law wrong? IS breaking the law wrong? Can laws be broken? What’s the difference between Newton’s Laws of Motion, and the laws passed through legislation and written down on paper? Can you answer any of these questions for me? Have you looked into the topic and understand what you’re talking about?

      [0]
    • Cameron D. Loutitt, the depths of your inner mind are far too deep for little old me to understand, let alone teach. You must look elsewhere for the answers to your questions.

      I bow to you and all your greatness oh enlightened one. Hahahahaha

      [0]
    • I know the answers to the questions; I’m saying if you put the time into educating yourself and learn the answers for yourself, you’d come to the realization of what I’m talking about for yourself. Also, I don’t want you to bow to me, but to stand up and realize your own sovereignty. I know you’re being sarcastic, but that doesn’t really change that it’s not about me ruling over people, but people knowing how to rule over themselves, so that they aren’t a hazard to other people’s freedom and safety.

      So how exactly do you think the roads you drive on to get the parking ticket are built or maintained? By the magic fucking road fairy. And to anyone who thinks taxes and fines are unjust, I wish you no ill will, I just hope your house burns down.

  6. It snowed kinda common sense to not park where you know they are going to be plowing..aka main roads and ets bus routes. I dont even drive and know this.

    [0]
  7. Parking ban is a parking ban. Did you not see the dump of snow we got. They have to clear the streets. You deserve the fine.

  8. Sara Curd Sara Curd says:

    Thats why it says seasonal. If theres snow on road dont park there .find a place that doesn’t have signs that say seasonal.

  9. Lori Lynn Lori Lynn says:

    It’s been all over the news and radio since Friday that the parking ban is in place. If there was a whole street of parked cars, you all prevented them from doing their jobs. I’m sure that costs the city much more than the “easy” 100.00 fines they gave out. Pay the 100.00 and chalk it up as a learning experience, and be thankful they didn’t tow you or block your car in with big piles of snow instead.

  10. Rose Kievit Rose Kievit says:

    Get over it. Unlike you the majority of the city prefers to drive on good roads, and those of us who take transit appreciate when our buses aren’t getting stuck so they can stay on schedule as best they can. It happens every year when there’s a heavy snowfall, for the last 3+ years. Next time pay attention and you wouldn’t have a ticket.

  11. You did see the snow on the ground and the little parking sign that says Seasonal Parking, right? So it cost you $100 to learn that when it snows, wherever one of those signs are posted it’s not a good idea to park there cause you will get a ticket or towed! Seasonal parking 101 – $100.00.

  12. Ya come to castle downs see all the vehicles lined up with piles of snow and now unable to get out. Why say when city does nothing.

    Welcome to Cash Cow city. Cha-Ching. The city doesn’t want vehicles. Anytime or anywhere. They certainly don’t give a shit about people in apartment buildings with no visitor parking. Lol

  16. Take an uber to your friends next time, it might be cheaper for you.

  17. Everyone was warned and signage clearly showed no parking your own stupidity caused the ticket not the seasonl parking ban

    [0]
  18. There’s signs everywhere fool, I hope they plowed the whole street of cars in

  19. Look outside. See that? That’s called SNOW. We get that sometimes. And sometimes, it’s hard to get it all off the road – let alone out of the way of bus routes.

    Maybe learn to read the signs that say NO PARKING – SEASONAL and have a look around. You earned that ticket and so did everyone parking there.

  20. A year or two before this parking ban came into effect, no one would move there car on the road in front of my apartment building, and eventally with the windrows piling up, the 2 lane road in summer became a 1 road lane in the winter for 100 meters or so. And some people could not get through when a delievery truck was blocking the one way road, one of those veichles was an ambulance…. I am all for this seasonal ban, would love to see the ticket prices higher

  21. Illiteracy is your problem not ours. You deserve the fine. Learn to read, and write for that matter, and your day may improve.

    If you follow the City on social media you will be notified of plowing plans…

  23. Sabrina Koza Sabrina Koza says:

    Parking in zone like that deserves a ticket. Saves the driver bitching later on that the snow plow burried their car. Which would be a rant blaming the city and plows for doing so. The ban is there for a reason, not just to fuck with peoples day.

  24. 100 dollars is a lot less then having to wait for your ass to finish partying then drive home …the drivers and operators sitting there getting paid overtime plus the contract they got increasing by the hour. Don’t bitch

    [0]
  25. They were announcing it on TV and radio….there were signs on some roads also that they would be plowing and the deadline to remove vehicles…..yup…time to pay attention

    [0]
  26. They announced on media…tv, radio, etc. Plus put out flashing seasonal ban signs. They need to plow the streets to make them less hazardous. You break the rules, you pay. Pretty simple.

  27. Stfu and pay. You’re not special

  28. Were you looking for sympathy? You’ll find it between shit and symphlis in the dictionary. It was all over the news. The streets need to be plowed.

    Guess ya should have read the signs and be thankful you didn’t get the additional dumb ass tax of $150 + impound fees for the towing!

  32. Rowena Eger Rowena Eger says:

    You must be new to Canada. You see here we get something called snow,you might actually have seen it as we got a whole bunch the last couple of days! Now this snow makes the roads difficult and even dangerous sometimes,so us industrious Canadians devised a method of removing said snow. This ingenious invention is called a plow,usually followed by a huge dump truck to haul all that pretty white stuff away! These vehicles are enormous,and when you add the snow,there is not a lot of room to work! This only happens a few times a year,and almost never in summer,so now you know,experience is the best teacher! Have a great day,and watch those street signs,they are not just decoration!

  33. Frankly I get pissed off that more cars don’t get ticketed and towed!!!
    Blading these routes is useless when they have to go around a bunch of idiots who think they’re above the law and we end up with huge windrows and reduced passing lanes!!
    Follow the rules = no problems!

  34. Lol. I said to my husband, even after all these announcements and signs, people are still going to park where they shouldn’t and cry about it.

  35. Lol, consider it a life lesson. This isn’t a particularly new bylaw
