RCMP Issue Winter Parking Ban For Lunenburg County

A winter parking ban is in effect tonight for Lunenburg County. RCMP are asking motorists not to leave their vehicles unattended or parked along roads or highways with the impending snow storm. The Mounties say the ban is in effect between the hours of 1am and 6am. Sgt. Paul Coughlin says drivers risk their vehicles being towed if they don't follow the rules.

Coughlin says further restrictions are listed for communities including the Village of Chester, Western Shore and New Germany who have additional regulations in place to limit parking during snowstorms. Fines as high as $233 can be issued if cars have to be towed.
