How many new Barrie home-owners think to check the local parking by-laws when they move into their new home? It might not be a bit deal if you are staying within your current city or town, but what if you have moved into a new one? Even those of us who have lived in the same home for 10 or 15 years; have we kept up to date with all the curb-side by-laws?
I came across a little reminder in the Oct 16th edition of The Barrie Examiner and I thought it was a very timely reminder. The main points are that you can’t park on or over the sidewalk, on or over a curb within a driveway, on a front lawn (that is landscaped). Also, you can’t park within 1.5 m of a driveway, within 9 m of an intersection and within 3 m of a fire hydrant.
As most of you know, the winter parking rules will be in effect before we know it!
