In accordance to By-law 2004-28, no person shall park or stand a vehicle on a highway in such a manner as to interfere with the movement of traffic. Every person who parks their vehicle on the roadside during the winter months may have their vehicle towed at the Owner’s expense.
Please remember that plowing or placing snow onto or across municipal roads is prohibited under the Highway Traffic Act. By doing this, ditches are filled in and are unable to function properly leading to washouts in the spring and icy roads in the winter.
The Public Works Department works to keep roads clear of snow and ice after a snowfall. Residents often deposit snow and ice from their property onto the roads not realizing that this contravenes the Highway Traffic Act, contributes to unsafe driving and walking conditions, and increases the cost of providing winter road maintenance. When you are clearing snow from your driveway, please keep this snow on your property. Your efforts in making winter driving and walking safe for everyone are appreciated.
