Commencing of the (Huge) Parking Fines Is Back for Another Season in Cobourg

In Local

The commencing of the fines has begun in Cobourg.

As of the Victoria Day long weekend, law-enforcement (by-law) officers are starting to ticket vehicles around the harbour area

A number of vehicles by the harbour received the $160 fine for illegally parking on Monday, May 22, 2023.

Two people from Port Hope were shocked to find a ticket on the windshield of their vehicle as they exited a local restaurant.

“Very ticked,” said the passenger.
