Owners of vehicles parked without permission may be subject to fines

The City of Corner Brook is giving notice to the registered owners of nearly 40 vehicles that are parked without permission off Confederation Drive Extension that they will be ticketed if they are not removed.

CORNER BROOK  As a result of numerous complaints from the public, and at the request of the property owners, the City of Corner Brook is giving notice to the registered owners of nearly 40 vehicles that are parked without permission off Confederation Drive Extension that they will be ticketed if they are not removed.

 

A letter has been placed on the windshield of each vehicle currently parked at the location, advising that it must be removed by July 19. Those that are not removed by that date will be ticketed. The property owner may also choose to tow the vehicles, at the vehicle owners’ risk and expense.

 

Under the Highway Traffic Act, the City of Corner Brook’s enforcement officers are authorized to issue fines ranging from $45 to $900 to the registered owners of vehicles that are parked (a) without permission on private property, (b) do not have proper identification plates, or (c) appear to be abandoned.

 

Under the Environmental Protection Act, registered owners could also be subject to fines ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 if the vehicle is deemed to be creating an environmental hazard.

    I doubt the car dealers are worried about competition from that lot. Most of what's up there has been there for months... Not exactly big business... and how, exactly, is this a cash grab? The letter says they have more than two weeks to get their vehicles out of there BEFORE they are ticketed. The cops could have just slapped tickets on every one of them is they were looking for cash. Even then, the cost of processing the tickets is probably more than what they would have gotten from the fines... some people just don't use think before they post here... yeesh.

    Under the HIghway Traffic Act the town of CB can also issue fines for parking on sidewalks but that doesn't happen. I'm looking out my window right now and I see a some old crappy brown Dodge parked fully on the sidewalk - again. It was blocked, a mother pushing a child in stroller had to go out ontop the road to get around that piece of junk. And believe it not but the Highway Traffic Act says she could be fined for walking on the road if there is a sidewalk provided. CB logic at it's best, out of the way cars on an empty lot take priority over blocked sidewalks.

      So, why don't you call the city or the RNC and tell them there's a vehicle parked on the sidewalk so they can come and ticket it? You seem to be saying that it happens repeatedly. Have you told anyone about it? The cops can't be everywhere and see everything. You also have a civic responsibility to report things when you see them.

    It's crown land? LOL How could the property owners complain? Nothing to see here folks, just another attempted cash grab by the City of Corner Brook backed by the local car dealers in the area that think they are losing sales via the private sales generated at that lot. I guess they also must be applying the same rules to Buckles Busing that park and work on their buses just down the road on another piece of crown land?
