Winter Parking Restrictions
Help us keep your roads clear of snow and ice! Winter Parking Restrictions are in effect from November 1st to April 15th each year. During this period, no vehicles may be parked on the road between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m.
This regulation is enforced during the restriction period regardless of the presence of snow or ice to ensure that there are no vehicles parked on the road when adverse weather occurs.
What Does "Unassumed Road" Mean?
This means that the Township doesn't perform maintenance on the road at this time. Once a road is registered with the Land Registry Office, it becomes public highway dedicated to the Township of King. Both the Parking By-law and the Highway Traffic Act can be enforced regardless of whether the road is assumed or not.
Request for Parking Consideration
If you require on-street parking for out of town guests, driveway repairs or special functions, please contact the By-law Enforcement Department to request temporary consideration for on-street parking.
Parking consideration only exempts the indicated vehicle(s) from certain parking regulations depending on the nature of the request. For example, exemption from winter parking restrictions may be dependent upon weather and snow clearing needs. No consideration will be given for parking in violation of posted signage.
Parking consideration will not be granted for unlicensed or immobile vehicles, commercial vehicles or school buses. Parking Considerations are not intended for homeowners with more vehicles than their driveway/garage can accommodate and will not be granted.
Fines and Towing
Most parking infractions in King will incur a fine of $40.00, with the exception of Parking in a Fire Route ($100.00) and Parking in a Designated Accessible Parking Space Without a Permit ($300.00).
By-law Enforcement Officers may tow any vehicle found in violation of municipal parking regulations. Generally, the municipality will only tow parked vehicles that present a risk to traffic safety or obstruct access to private property. Fees incurred for tows are collected by the towing company from the vehicle owner before the vehicle may be released.

Disputing a Parking Ticket
If you wish to dispute your parking ticket, you may request a First Attendance hearing to review your ticket with a By-law Enforcement Officer, or request to challenge the ticket in court.
What is a First Attendance Hearing?
A First Attendance Hearing is an opportunity to review your ticket with a By-law Enforcement Officer and request a reduction or cancellation of the fine.
During a First Attendance Hearing, By-law Enforcement will review the circumstances of the ticket, including the relevant evidence and municipal parking regulations. The decision to reduce or cancel your parking ticket is at the discretion of the Township and may depend on past history of parking infractions and the circumstances of the parking ticket.
If you are not satisfied with the outcome of the hearing, you may still proceed to court to challenge the ticket.
To arrange a First Attendance Hearing, please contact the Township of King By-law Enforcement Office.
