Maybe to avoid bird poop or OP is originally from a Montreal suburb.PointsHubby wrote: ↑ Honestly ...
Prob ok if you live in the boonies
Not ok if you live anywhere urban or suburban
There will definitely be bylaws about such things
Living in TO
Not 100% sure WHY you’d even want one
It’s gonna be an expensive, useless, and ugly item added to your driveway / yard

A few of my neighbors are now using waterproof car covers. Cars are stuck at home on driveways and birds have been popping a lot this spring. A Q5 owner a few doors down has resorted to washing his ride every other day.
I know in Montreal these car shelter things pop up everywhere just before winter starts. Bylaw allows the use of temporary car shelter in white during the winter season and there is actually a booming rental business.
Maybe after reading these articles ... you might have a change of heart and decide you can put up with the snow clearingJEDI Force wrote: ↑ I live in the south shore of Montreal and yes, the temporary winter shelters are very popular and do not require a permit here. There are specific dates however (in my city, they are allowed from October 15 to April 15). The fact that they are anchored or not is irrelevant. It is highly recommended to anchor them even though most people don't.
They don't look good but people don't have to remove snow and ice from their cars. I don't have one because my driveway is not wide enough but I would think about it otherwise because I hate removing ice from the car windows (I don't mind snow).
