Bathurst: Bad parking habits create risk to public safety

The City of Bathurst thinks people can do better when it comes to parking their vehicles on city streets.

The city, along with the Bathurst Police Force, kicked off a social media campaign earlier this week to curb illegal parking.

The city says blocking fire hydrants and crosswalks, as well as parking in spots reserved for those with reduced mobility, creates a risk to public safety.

Anybody caught parking illegally could be fined.
