INCREASED FINES FOR LAKEFRONT PARKING VIOLATIONS MAY TO SEPTEMBER

From Saturday, May 1 to Thursday, September 30, fines for parking and stopping violations will increase to $100 on local roads, City parks and municipal parking lots south of Lakeshore Road, from the east city limits to Meadow Wood Rd. Parking violations occurring between 2 to 6 a.m. are exempt from the increased fines.

The fines have been increased in an effort to reduce traffic congestion and illegal parking in these areas. These can impact neighbourhood safety and access for emergency service vehicles. These areas become busy during the spring and summer months as residents and visitors are drawn to the City’s waterfront parks, trails and amenities.

The City is committed to keeping Mississauga’s waterfront neighbourhoods safe and attractive for residents and visitors to enjoy. People should park only in permitted areas within parks or adjacent neighbourhoods. If the parking lot is full, please consider exploring one of the City’s other 500 parks in Mississauga. Those visiting the area are also encouraged to consider walking, cycling or taking transit.
