Parking Enforcement

On-Street Parking


Parking Enforcement Officers enforce the Municipality of Clarington's Traffic By-law. In some instances, they also enforce parking on private property. The Traffic By-law regulates traffic and parking on highways, municipal streets, boulevards, sidewalks, and municipal property.

If your vehicle has been towed, you must take the following steps before your vehicle is returned:

  1. Pay any outstanding parking infractions online or at the Municipal Clerk's Department
  2. Go to Durham Regional Police Services, located at 2046 Maple Grove Road, Bowmanville or call 905-579-1520

  5. Once the applicable towing and impound fees have been paid, the vehicle is released from Bob's Towing Impound Lot.
School zone safety

Parking Enforcement Officers routinely patrol schools to enforce parking regulations. Parents should park safely at schools and obey 'No Parking' and 'No Stopping' signs. Leave bus stops for buses, and fire routes for emergency vehicles.

Boulevard parking

For your safety and the safety of the community, do not park on the boulevard portion of your driveway, if your driveway is located within 15 metres of an intersection. The boulevard is the portion of land between your property line and the road or curb. Cars parked in the boulevard, within 15 metres of an intersections, are parked illegally.
