Officials will continue to review the city's snow route policy after more than 900 people were given tickets during last week's temporary parking ban.

The parking ban on streets designated with signs as snow routes came into effect Friday morning at 6 a.m. MT and was lifted at 6 p.m. on Saturday.

Ald. Gian-Carlo Carra wants to know if the city could look at enacting the ban a bit later than 6 a.m. to minimize the inconvenience to morning commuters. He suggests a 7 a.m. start time might work better.

Mayor Naheed Nenshi says that may happen.

"This is very much a live conversation, since this is only the third one we've ever enacted," he said. "And in fact this question of 'can we do it just a little bit later?' is a very live one… In fact, I would say 8 a.m., not 7 a.m., but we will sort that out as we continue with this program."

Nenshi says the program to impose a temporary parking ban on snow routes is working well and improving safety for drivers, as those roads are being cleared 30 to 40 per cent quicker.
