Some Pearson Airport Visitors Could Face Substantial Fines

If you plan on picking or dropping someone off at Pearson Airport, you might want to know that you could be subject to a hefty fine if you don't obey parking rules.

Pearson Airport recently said that, in order to curb the practice of roadside parking and keep the roads around the airport safe, the airport will begin issuing mobile payment notices on Sept. 5.

If you're parked on the roadsides leading into the terminals, a picture will be taken of your license plate and an invoice in the amount of $75.00 will be sent to your home address.

The airport is asking drivers to use its free cell phone lots instead.

"The objective of the mobile payment notice program is to encourage use of Toronto Pearson's free cell phone lots and to discourage the unsafe practice of parking on the roadsides around the terminals," the airport wrote on its website.

"Toronto Pearson's Cell Phone Lots are free, safe, short-term parking areas that accommodate a total of 266 vehicles. Here, you can conveniently wait for your party to arrive."

If you are parked in a lot, your vehicle must be attended at all times.

Drivers with electric vehicles should note that there are EV charging stations in Cell Phone Lot 2.
