The Section de l'application de la réglementation du stationnement (SARS) was established in 1977, with about 20 agents de stationnement and has been integrated with the SPVM's Division de la sécurité routière et de la circulation in January 2007.
Today, the staff is made up of equal numbers of men and women, and in the summer months they number over 200. In winter, the staff includes 900 members (including the préposés au remorquage who work during snow removal operations).
Every year, agents de stationnement respond to over 30,000 calls from citizens seeking their help. The calls involve vehicles illegally parked in residential zones where a permit is required, vehicles illegally parked in reserved handicapped parking areas and in front of driveways, and infractions related to reserved bus or taxi zones.
The fleet includes 113 vehicles and 15 bicycles, and the section makes use of some of the very latest technology, such as the Système d'émission de constats informatisés (SÉCI).
The agents de stationnement work with the 20 postes de quartier in the former boroughs of Montréal.
