Red Deerians are reminded that Grey Route streets are no longer individually signed during snow plowing; instead large signs are placed at the entrances to Snow Zones. Green Routes are signed with red “no parking” signs that are placed approximately every 50 metres. Vehicles parked on Grey Routes when scheduled will be ticketed $85 and plowed in and vehicles parked on Green Routes when scheduled will be ticketed $155 and towed.

To avoid getting a ticket, residents are asked to:

  1. Know your Snow Zone and Route – www.reddeer.ca/snowzone.
  2. Check the schedule using one of the following methods:
    • View the map and schedule at www.reddeer.ca/snowzone.
    • Sign up for Snow Zone email alerts at www.reddeer.ca/snowzone.
    • Follow The City of Red Deer’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
    • Call the Snow Zone Hotline at 403-406-8796.
    • Look for signage: Red “no parking” signs are used on Green Routes only. On Grey Routes, there will be large signs at the entrances to neighbourhoods indicating when plowing is taking place. These signs are placed a minimum of 12 hours before plowing begins.
  3. Move your vehicle when their Snow Zone is scheduled. Plowing takes place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Friday on Grey Routes.
