Please do not push snow or ice onto the road or sidewalk when clearing your driveway; this applies to both our urban and rural residents in the Township.
This practice endangers the safety of the motoring public, as well as snow removal equipment and its operators.
Hazards created by pushing snow onto road allowances can include:
- Frozen snow piles that can cause extensive damage to snow removal equipment and injury to the operators;
- An increase to the chance of accidents with traffic traveling on the road;
- Increased drifting snow in the area;
- Snow piles that cause drainage obstruction in the spring run off.
We appreciate your co-operation in this matter. It will assist us greatly in keeping everyone safe this winter.
