Parking Restrictions Key to Safety and Services June 12, 2018

Parking Restrictions Key to Safety and Services

The City of North Battleford welcomes travelers from near and far. During this time of vacations and family road trips, the City is reminding residents and visitors with recreational vehicles they must obey all traffic signs and parking restrictions under Bylaw No. 1946. Offenders will be ticketed by the Community Safety Officers.

Recreational vehicles include but are not limited to; campers, tent trailers, fifth wheel trailers, vehicles pulled on trailers – boats, jet skis, all-terrain vehicles and motorcycles.

Generally speaking no person shall park a vehicle on any street where parking is prohibited, restricted or limited by display of a sign.

Parking restrictions allow multiple City of North Battleford crews to perform numerous works and inspections that would be seriously impeded or delayed if vehicles are not removed, causing delays in services provided to residents.

Recreational vehicles must not obstruct, interfere with or interrupt the free passage of traffic on any public highway. Vehicles cannot be parked on any sidewalk or curb crossing. Also, no person shall park or leave parked at any time, a trailer, or recreational vehicle detached from the vehicle used for moving that trailer or recreational vehicle.

The best way to ensure a safe stay, safety for other motorists and pedestrians is to follow all parking signs and restrictions. More information on Traffic Bylaw No. 1946 can be found at: https://www.cityofnb.ca/city_government/administration/city_bylaws.html

Street Line Painting - 2018 June 1, 2018

Contractors are currently moving through the City to re-paint street lines. This year, additional streets are being painted for traffic safety and to be more in accordance to the Street Classification Regulations.

All streets in the City have a street classification assigned to them and based on this classification, the streets require line painting or do not need to be painted: Expressways, Arterial and Collector streets are classified as streets that typically experience higher traffic volumes and will therefore be painted. Local streets – defined as roadways which allow vehicles to reach residential, commercial and industrial properties – will not be painted as set out in the Street Classification.
