If you're planning to visit Halifax be careful where you park.
Halifax Regional Police say 325 overnight winter parking tickets were issued by the six officers brought in when HRM announced the ban was being put into effect during the day on Wednesday because of snow in parts of the municipality.
Spokesman Const. Pierre Bourdages said the six officers, who are paid overtime for being brought in to enforce the ban, handed out 138 tickets in the East Division (Dartmouth), 89 in Central Division (peninsula) and 98 in West Division (Mainland South and North, Bedford).
The overnight winter parking ban, which was lifted Thursday morning, runs between 1 and 6 a.m. when in effect. Anyone ticketed is handed a $50 fine.
