Warnings and Dangers in Montreal: Driving-Parking
With its distinct season, warm summers, and chilly winters, the city of Montreal attracts visitors throughout the year. However, tourists should be aware of driving and parking issues when in the area.
Beware of Traffic
There are a number of issues with driving in Montreal. There are multiple one-way streets, which may be confusing to people who are visiting for the first time. Also, parts of the city have very narrow lanes, with the sides of the streets filled by parked cars. Drivers also need to be aware of pedestrians, while pedestrians have to be on the lookout for drivers. If you’re planning to leave for another large city, make sure to fuel up, since you’ll be driving between two and three hours before getting anywhere major.
Beware of Traffic
Visitors to the city will want to be very aware of the signs that are posted along the streets. While there are many places where you can park along the street, these are sometimes only parking spots for certain periods of the day. Make sure that you pay the parking meter rather than risk a fine. This rule applies whether you are in a commercial or residential area. Regardless of where you are, it’s easy to make a parking mistake and end up with a new fine.
