New Traffic Bylaw
In January 2012, a new Traffic Bylaw was approved by Strathcona County Council and the Alberta Minister of Transportation. The bylaw repeals 9 bylaws that required updating to address changes in infrastructure, and implements regulations to deal with right-of-way concerns throughout the community.
- Recreational vehicles on private property cannot extend over the curb or sidewalk, whichever is closest to your property.
- A parked vehicle cannot impede or obstruct, or cause a safety concern of the users of the roadway, highway or right-of-way.
- Vehicle owners cannot continuously park in the same location. Vehicle must be moved at least 1 block to not be continuously parked.
- Commercial vehicle owners shall not park vehicles adjacent to a residence without the consent of the residence owner.
Obstructions in the Road Right-of-Way
- No objects (such as garbage, building materials, dumpsters, snow, dirt, sand, gravel and/or sod) can be deposited or stored within the right-of-way.
- The placement of driveway aids (curb ramps) will only be permitted April 15 to November 1.
Engine Retarder Brakes
- Engine retarder brakes cannot be applied or engaged on any commercial vehicle within a hamlet (Ardrossan, Josephburg, etc.) and Urban Service Area.
Rights-of-Way Construction Activity Permit (ROWCAP)
- Any person or business wanting to perform work in a road rights-of-way must obtain an approved and valid ROWCAP, which replaces the Temporary Traffic Control (TTC) Permit.
All penalties outlined can be found in schedule "K" of the Traffic Bylaw
