Park where it’s safe and legal. Signs, curb markings and common sense will tell you if you are allowed to park. You should park where you are not blocking traffic and where others can clearly see you. If you park where you shouldn’t, you could be a hazard to others, you could be fined or your vehicle could be towed.

Park parallel to and within 30 centimetres (one foot) of the curb. If you’re parked on a hill, turn the wheels to keep your vehicle from rolling into traffic. Turn the wheels:
 • to the right when uphill without a curb or downhill with or without a curb 
• to the left when uphill with a curb. Set the parking brake and leave the vehicle in gear: 
• leave an automatic transmission in “park” gear 
• with a standard transmission, place the vehicle in “reverse” if facing downhill, and “first” gear if facing uphill or if on a level surface.
