Mississauga triples some parking fines in waterfront area amid high COVID-19 demand


Parking tickets in Mississauga’s waterfront areas will pack a bigger punch starting in May after city council approved increases to fines near Lake Ontario.

Council approved the creation of the Lakefront Increased Penalty Zone April 21, hiking $30 and $55 parking tickets to $100 for areas south of Lakeshore Road.

The increased fines, which will be in effect May 1 to Sept. 30, aim to curb traffic congestion and illegal parking in the waterfront area as many have sought to flock to lakefront parks recently as a COVID-friendly outing.
