Toronto Police Service will resume ticketing and towing illegally parked vehicles within the city’s rush hour routes early next week.

In a press release, police announced that the operations would start on Monday, November 23.

Police had temporarily reduced the enforcements due to the CafeTO program, which enabled bars and restaurants to set up temporary outdoor dining areas along the curb lanes of city streets.

As the program has come to an end, officers will “resume enforcement and towing of all rush-hour route offences” beginning with Monday morning rush hour.

“If you park your vehicle in the rush hour route, you will get a $150 ticket and have your car towed,” said parking enforcement officer Erin Urquhart.

“Read the signs and make sure you have moved your car out of the rush hour to avoid getting tagged and towed.”

Toronto Police said the enforcement of expired vehicle plates will continue to be suspended following Service Ontario guidelines.
