What are the hours for meter enforcement?
What should I do if the meter I park at is broken?
Parking meters are enforced Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. It is a violation of the Traffic Bylaw for motorists to park for more than two hours at a meter on a weekend.
If someone experiences any difficulty with a meter they should immediately report the problem by calling Charlottetown Police Services at 902-629-4041 or 629-4089 explaining what the exact issue is - there is a technician with the Public Works Department that repairs the meters on a daily basis based on the complaints received by Police Services.
