If you own more then one vehicle, finding a place to park might just get a little more difficult.

Recently the city of Regina has enacted a bylaw that makes it a ticketable offence to park a vehicle anywhere on a person's lawn even if it's there own.

We contacted the Estevan Police Services bylaw officer Special Constable Josie Newton to see if that is indeed the case here in Estevan as well.

Constable Newton "Under the new property maintenance bylaws all residential front yards need to kept free of motorized vehicles so that's your cars and trucks any trailers or recreational vehicles."

Moving that car or trailer onto a public street seems like the next most reasonable option however Constable Newton went on to say that, it is only a temporary fix.

Constable Newton "under the traffic bylaw here in town vehicles have to be moved off the city streets every twenty-four hours or have to be moved every twenty-four hours, there are some areas in the city and there posted by signs that are every two hours." 

In regards to construction, we were curious if garbage trailers or flat decks with equipment could be left on a public street, according to Constable Newton.

"You can park a trailer on the street, it always has to be hooked up to a vehicle and under the bylaw, it has to be moved every two hours. That's what the bylaw states I am a little bit more lenient with that kind of stuff depending on what's going on but it does have to hooked up to a vehicle at all times."

If you are in the position where you have more vehicles then space its always best to park in your back yard if possible.
