    • Where "No Parking" applies, a motorist may stop their vehicle while actively loading and unloading property or passengers, provided it is safe to do so.
    • The break in the roadway caused by a driveway or back lane does not end a restricted parking zone. The restricted parking zone ends at intersections or when the sign shows a “one way” arrow. 
    • School pick-up and drop-off activity, and stopping to pick up mail from a Canada Post community mailbox are permitted within "No Parking" zones.

    • “Stopping” means the complete cessation from movement of a vehicle, whether occupied or not, except to avoid a collision, obey a traffic control device or follow the instructions of a peace officer or traffic control person.
    • "No Stopping" zones are typically used on busier roads to ensure that travel lanes are not obstructed and that visibility remains clear near curves, driveways and on approaches to crosswalks.
    • The break in the roadway caused by a driveway or back lane does not end a restricted parking zone. The restricted parking zone ends at intersections or when the sign shows a “one way” arrow.
