As city plows continue to work to clear residential streets following yesterday’s record breaking snowfall, the city has a important reminder to residents clearing snow from driveways and sidewalks: Under the Highway Traffic Act and City of Windsor By-laws, residents and private snow removal operators are prohibited from pushing snow back onto the street, as this creates unsafe road conditions for motorists.
By-law enforcement officers will be out issuing tickets where violations occur.
Windsor Fire and Rescue Services are asking that residents keep fire hydrants clear of snow. In the event of a fire, it will be easier for fire crews to gain access to the hydrant.
Crews hope to have those areas completed in approximately 24-36 hours. Any calls to 311 requesting plowing should be delayed until late tomorrow, when crews expect to have covered all areas.
