Traffic & Safety

Road Watch

The Town of Markham Road Watch Program is a community-based program that addresses the public's concern over dangerous and aggressive driving practices. The Road Watch Program gives residents an opportunity to report aggressive and unsafe driving to the police through the use of Citizen Report Forms with the objective of making our roads safe for everyone. York Regional Police undertake the administrative and enforcement process with the support and participation of the Town of Markham.

Daytime Parking Permits


In response to complaints about a large number of cars parking on Riverlands Avenue instead of at the hospital, the Town of Markham instituted a Daytime Parking Permit bylaw, which commenced September 1st.  Without a permit, no parking will be allowed in the affected areas. Only residents within the areas were issued permits.

Instead of the problem disappearing, it has now moved north one street to Settlement Park. Residents and CRPA board members alike took this new problem to the Town. On October 17, at the General Committee meeting, the Town approved extending the bylaw to Settlement Park and the affected portions of Country Glen and Walkerville. On October 25th, this extension was approved by Town Council. They also approved leaving the bylaw open, so that extensions can be made if and when new problems arise, without having to go to Council each time. Signs advising residents of this change have already been installed, and the bylaw will take effect Dec.1.

If you require further information regarding the Daytime Parking Permit program or to request a parking exemption for a visitor, you can contact the Town's Parking Control Department, at 905 477-7000 ext. 2050.
