Q&A - New Westminster Parking Bylaw Dispute
Bylaw 6027 states "No person shall stop or park a vehicle within 2 meters of the nearest edge of the closest sidewalk on an intersecting street." There were no signs along this side of the street.
At adjudication the meaning of terms "closest sidewalk" and "intersecting street" meaning was in dispute.
Adjudicator declared suddenly I am not going to listen and I find you guilty. I was not allowed to dispute the evidence in the "Screening Report" nor was I allowed to proceed.
I am frustrated that the city bears no responsibility for having no signs. Where does the City responsibility begin or end on the issue of posting signs?
