Winnipeg Parking Authority campaign encourages drivers to “Be Aware. Park with Care” around schools, fire lanes and designated spaces
Campaign aims to educate drivers prior to WPA mailing out tickets for parking violations
Winnipeg, MB– Today, the Winnipeg Parking Authority (WPA) launched its “Be Aware. Park with Care” campaign which encourages drivers to follow parking laws when stopping or parking around schools, fire lanes and designated parking spaces. The campaign aims to educate drivers about the parking rules in these high-offense areas prior to the WPA beginning to mail out parking tickets on May 1, 2017.
“Parking illegally around schools, in fire lanes and in designated parking spaces can cause serious safety concerns, traffic delays and inconvenience,” said Councillor Cindy Gilroy, Chair of the Standing Policy Committee on Innovation. “I’m pleased to see the Winnipeg Parking Authority take the initiative to educate the public and emphasize that these spaces are saved for something more important than your convenience.”
The campaign featuresseveral videos that will be used to supplement a social media campaign, radio spots, newspaper advertising as well as targeted communication with schools and parents.
“Illegally parked vehicles during school pick up and drop offs create serious safety hazards for children and cause traffic delays,” said Councillor Brian Mayes, the City’s Liaison for School Boards & Youth Opportunity. “I am thrilled the Winnipeg Parking Authority is launching this campaign and working with schools to address these concerns.”
Similarly, the campaign notes that illegally parked cars in fire lanes, whether at a shopping mall, grocery store, community centre or other public venue, can also cause safety issues.
“It’s vital that fire lanes remain free and clear of any parked cars so that we can respond quickly to emergency situations,” said Assistant Chief Mark Reshaur, Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service. “Whether it’s a fire or a medical emergency, seconds count so please pay attention to signage and do not park in fire lanes.”
Also highlighted in the campaign are designated parking spaces which are reserved for persons with a physical disability and a properly displayed current permit.

Coaching for Confidence
Internet-based program to help parents help children with difficulty with anxiety (excessive fearfulness, worry, or shyness).
Is your 4 to 12 year old child more shy or fearful than other children of the same age?
Shyness and anxiety are normal emotions. Some children, however, are much more shy or fearful than the average child. Anxiety may interfere with their enjoyment of school, activities with other children, new experiences (swimming lessons or sports), and their development of independence and confidence. Shyness and anxiety may also slow learning at school.
If you think that your child is more anxious (fearful, worried or shy) than most other children of the same age, you may be interested in Coaching for Confidence a web-based program developed for parents of children with anxiety by researchers at the University of Manitoba.
If you are interested in learning more about this evaluation study please contact Julie-Anne at email: CoachingForConfidence@umanitoba.ca or telephone 204-237-2055 and leave a message.
