Description

An infographic to illustrate how snowplows move snow along the street and block driveways and sidewalks. citizens are responsible for removing snow from these locations.

Text from Facebook post:
"Why did the plow leave snow in my driveway?" is a common question we hear from residents who are new to dealing with snowy winters.

The answer: It's unavoidable.
When the plow moves down the street, the blade pushes snow out of the street and into the gutter line (where driveways also happen to be). You can always expect to find snow at the bottom of driveways after the street is plowed.
With a large snowfall in the forecast, plan ahead and shovel in stages if you need to. And if you're able to, help a neighbor who needs a hand digging out.
