Our officers regularly patrol school zones to monitor parking compliance and educate the community about road rules.
Illegal parking in school zones
We have a zero-tolerance approach to illegal parking in school zones. If you park illegally in a school zone you will be issued with a fine. These parking offences carry higher penalties and the loss of demerit points.
