The Town of Milton is urging its residents to be aware of a parking scam that has been circulating.
The town recently took to Twitter to report that they have been notified about residents receiving fraudulent parking violation notices by email.
“City of Milton records indicate that a parking citation issued to the vehicle described below has not been paid,” reads the email as seen below. “This fines and applicable penalties area past due and must be paid within the next 15 calendar days.”

According to the town’s website, a few places where on-street parking is not permitted include on streets during snowstorms, in any area where a ‘No Parking Anytime’ sign is displayed, on a grass boulevard, within one metre of a driveway, on or overhanging a sidewalk, and in spaces designated for persons with disabilities without displaying a valid disabled person’s permit.
