Longer parking hours, bike box protection proposed in bylaw overhaul
Metro Ottawa

As part of a large-scale update to its traffic and parking bylaws, the city is planning on doing away with the so-called three-hour rule that governs weekend parking on unsigned streets.

Last month, the city asked residents to weigh in on the proposed change to the rule, which will see the three-hour parking maximum on unsigned roads bumped up to six hours between 7 p.m. on Friday and 7 a.m. on Monday.

(...)Bike boxes — those green squares where cyclists are permitted to wait while turning — are also being written into the new bylaw, so that it will be a specific offence for motorists to impede a cyclist’s right of way while using cycling infrastructure.
