Q&A - City of Surrey Parking Rules
I was just wondering about parking rules, as my family and any visitors to my home have been hassled by city parking enforcement about parking too close to an intersection. A family member and a caretaker of my grandmother would have been ticketed so far if they had not run out to speak to the officers.
I live in a neighbourhood with longer curved sidewalks at intersections. Parking enforcement officers are saying that we are not to park 6 meters from the intersection. However, they are starting to measure at the marked "Water AOS", which is positioned ~43cm inwards of the sidewalk edge and ~23cm away from the nearest drainage towards the crosswalk. This "Water AOS" is already just under 6 meters from the approaching side of the crosswalk of the intersection.
On observation, no other cars in the immediate vicinity are being ticketed or monitored for improper parking, sometimes even within 6 meters from the approach side of the nearest crosswalk.
We are very confused about this situation. Does this have to do with this marked small "Water AOS"?
