when is a car parked? When you stop and sit in your car's drivers seat, are you parking or just stopping? How is parking defined under the Ontario Traffic Act?

If you turn it off and leave it is parked.
If you sit in it it is stopped.

In other words if you sit in your driver's seat and this strange guard issued you a parking ticket -- X 'park vehicle on private property without consent' that would not hold water as parking, would it? Especially if the 'private property is the area in front of a store, sort of like a microplaza shopping strip? Am I on the right track for this one?

HTA definition:

Quote:
“park” or “parking”, when prohibited, means the standing of a vehicle, whether occupied or not, except when standing temporarily for the purpose of and while actually engaged in loading or unloading merchandise or passengers;


In other words, loading/offloading has to be started immediately, and immediately after it is finished, the vehicle has to be moved. If the ticket was under a municipal by-law (which it sounds like it was), there is a chance that the definition of "parked" may be different, but the chances are it is pretty similar to the HTA.
