The warm weather has finally arrived in Alberta and Stettler RV owners have brought their holiday trailers and motor homes out of storage.

Many owners are parking these holiday units near their home residences and RCMP have fielded a number of queries and complaints regarding unlawful parking.

The Town of Stettler traffic bylaw specifies:

— No person may park a recreational vehicle or trailer on a highway in the Town of Stettler, contrary to Part 3, Section 306(2) of Bylaw No. 1941-06.

And further that:

— No person shall park any trailer upon any highway unless the said trailer is attached to a vehicle by which it may be propelled or drawn, and when so attached the trailer shall be deemed part of the vehicle and subject to the regulations pertaining to vehicles, unless otherwise authorized by order of the municipal administrator, contrary to Part 3, Section 313(2) of Bylaw No. 1941-06.

And further that;

— No trailer or RV may be parked on any property unless it is wholly contained on a driveway or parking pad, contrary to Part 3, Section 313(4) of Bylaw No. 1941-06.

Anyone failing to comply with the Town of Stettler bylaw will be issued a $50 parking ticket upon first offence.

If the owner fails to remove the ticketed trailer or RV within 24 hours, the vehicle may be towed at the owner’s expense.

Please be mindful of these parking laws and be courteous to your neighbours regarding where you park your holiday vehicle.

The Stettler bylaw and RCMP officers will be closely monitoring this issue and following up on all complaints.
