The City of Windsor Parking Enforcement Division is planning to carry out large-scale school blitzes in an effort to crack down on illegal stopping and parking in response to a large number of complaints from residents.

With students returning to in-class learning this fall, the number of vehicles around area schools is increasing. Vehicles stopped on the street to drop off children can reduce sight lines for drivers and make walking unsafe for pedestrians.

“The safety of the children is paramount,” says Coordinator of Parking Services Bill Kralovensky. “Letting your child out across the street from their school to cross oncoming traffic creates a situation that is extremely dangerous and cannot be tolerated. Extra officers have been hired through the City’s contractor of enforcement, and these staff will be stationed at the offending schools.”

Tickets for those parking illegally range from $40 for stopping in a no-stopping zone to $100 for obstructing the flow of traffic.
