Snow Removal Operations – a Reminder

SNOW REMOVAL OPERATIONS

During the snow removal season, please be mindful of the following:

No person shall park or stand a vehicle on a highway in such a manner as to interfere with the movement of traffic or the clearing of snow from the highway (Highway Traffic Act, RSO, 1990, c. H.8).  A Police Constable, County or Municipal appointed By-Law Officer may have the vehicle removed from the roadway and stored at the owner’s expense.

No person shall deposit snow or ice on a roadway without permission in writing to do so from the Ministry or the road authority responsible for maintenance of the road (Highway Traffic Act, RSO, 1990, c. H.8).

Please be sure to keep the snow back away from the roadway when clearing your driveway, entrance and mail box.  This is to avoid creating a hazard for the travelling public.

Cooperation in these matters is appreciated to ensure the safety of others and efficient winter maintenance of County and Municipal Roads.
