Watch Out, Watch Out, Parking Tickets Will Be About !

Parking Notice
The Town of Oakville has recently received complaints regarding parking around Falgarwood Public School.

Dropping off and picking students up in school areas can cause a lot of extra traffic congestion. Illegally stopped or parked cars are a safety risk as they make it hard for other drivers to see pedestrians, particularly children, crossing the street. For these reasons, streets around our school have “No Stopping” and “No Parking” signs installed. Please learn the difference between No Stopping and No Parking and help keep our school area safe for children.

No stopping
 -
No stopping means the halting of your vehicle is prohibited, even momentarily and even if occupied.
No stopping requirements: no waiting allowed, no stopping (even for a moment) to pick up or drop off passengers

No parking 
-
No parking means you may stop briefly to drop off passengers, but you may not sit in your vehicle indefinitely and you must not leave your vehicle. ~
No parking requirements: no waiting allowed, stopping allowed for a moment to pick up or drop off passengers

The Town of Oakville parking enforcement will be visiting during the month of MARCH and onwards Falgarwood during peak hours to educate and then enforce parking by-laws. They now have the technology to do this by simply taking a photograph of your vehicle illegally parked or stopped with either of the signs in view, and tickets will be sent automatically.
Reminders: Please remember safety is our main priority.  So we please ask our community to:
be considerate of our Falgarwood neighbours
ensure personal driveways are not blocked or used for parking
-be patient and courteous with our crossing guards as they help our students cross the road safely.
please come to a full and complete stop at all stop signs.
                  Lets work together to keep ALL our children safe!
