Advance warning of snow removal and the times at which it will be taking place are given by flashing or fixed lights on major thoroughfares and by special notices placed on side streets.
The plastic signs replace orange sandwich boards in most areas of the Westmount, which were typically placed on snowbanks when snow removal was to take place.
Street cleaning occurs on a fixed schedule and parking is not permitted during the designated periods, which are clearly posted.
Leaving a vehicle engine idling is costly to the environment and to you. It pollutes the air you breathe and wastes your money. It’s also illegal.
