Lincoln will ticket cars parked on street as plowing efforts continue

Lincoln is continuing its “Keep It Clear” protocol today (Jan. 26) as efforts to plow all of its roads continue.

The town declared it yesterday morning at 9 am, just as snow had already started falling lightly in the town, as well as the rest of the Niagara Region.

The “Keep It Clear” ban is mostly aimed at getting parked cars off the road during snowstorms so town plows can move freely up and down residential street. Once activated, the ban traditionally runs for 72 hours after the initial call.

Those who decide to leave their cars on the street face $75 tickets with the town warning habitual offenders may also be subject to towing.

Said Lincoln in a release, “Please be patient as Town crews respond to this winter event. Crews will address all Town roads as soon as possible in a priority sequence, beginning with primary roads and progressing to secondary roads.”

They added that plows were “very likely” to make several passes on most streets in order to address the snow removal.

They added that residents could “expect to have to clear the end of the driveway (windrow) multiple times. This is what plows need to do to clear Lincoln streets and allow traffic to move safely throughout the community.”
