Why did the plow leave snow in front of our driveway and on our sidewalk?
Plows are designed to push snow to the side, so snow is inevitably deposited at the end of driveways and onto sidewalks. Drivers plow at low speeds (10 to 15 MPH) to minimize this issue, but the problem becomes more challenging to avoid with greater accumulations of snow. With the new snow ordinance, you will have 48 hours after the storm ends to shovel your walks to help avoid shoveling again after the plow comes by. If a storm produces over 10 inches of snow, the shoveling requirement of 48 hours will be waived until the roads are clear.
