Town of High River Traffic Bylaw 4310/2011 regulates the use of motor vehicles, bicycles, off-road vehicles and skateboards within town boundaries. It also sets out the responsibilities of pedestrians.

Sections of the bylaw prohibit:

  • Parking a trailer on a street, unless it remains attached to a vehicle
  • Allowing shrubs or trees on private property to overhang and obstruct pedestrian or vehicle traffic
  • Parking a vehicle on the street that displays a ‘For Sale’ sign
  • Driving a vehicle on Town owned land (parks/berms) without permission

Residence Parking

Vehicles parked on residential streets must be licensed, registered, not causing any obstruction and must be seen to be operable. Vehicles that are not seen to be operable will be removed.

Parking is not allowed in alleys.

Cul-de-sac Parking

Angle parking in a cul-de-sac is allowed providing it does not interfere with the movement of other vehicles, including Town garbage trucks and snow removal equipment.

School Buses

School buses may not be parked on the street unless they are actively loading and unloading students.
