We often feel we own the space in front of our home and get annoyed when someone else parks there. Streets are a shared resource that all Edmontonians have access to.

That means everyone has the right to park on City-owned streets, even if it’s right in front of your house. People can park on your side of the street even if they live on the other side, down the block, or on the other side of Edmonton!

Please report abandoned vehicles only if you believe the vehicle had been left and truly abandoned, as this should not be used to settle neighbour disputes. Unfortunately, there are citizens who use this as a tool to file a complaint against their neighbours and falsely report a vehicle as abandoned, knowing full well that it is not abandoned.

Accessible Parking Enforcement

I Was Only Running in for a Minute

We hear lots of excuses:

  • The parking lot was full.
  • I didn't see the sign.
  • It was raining.
  • My placard is expired - I haven't had time to renew.

But the truth is, there is no good reason to illegally park in an accessible stall.

Accessible Parking Awareness Brochure

Designated Accessible Parking Stall Violations

If your vehicle is parked illegally in a designated accessible parking stall, you will be issued a $250 ticket and may face towing and impound charges.

No part of the vehicle may occupy any part of the stall designated for drivers with a Service Alberta Parking Placard for People with Disabilities. The City of Edmonton has a "zero tolerance" policy for vehicles illegally parked in designated accessible parking stalls.
