Watch out for the Snowplow this Winter!

The snow banks created by our snowplows can be very attractive to our children as a source of entertainment, but they can also be very dangerous. Snowplows are difficult to control. Visibility is poor, snow and ice can be thrown with a strong force from the plow wing, and our operators are often pushing back the snow banks to make room for more snow. Please help to ensure that children follow these safety rules:
  • Don't play on or in snow banks along the road at any time​
  • Don't run onto the road ahead of or behind the snowplow
  • Do stay well back from the road when a snowplow approaches​​

Help Keep our Roads clear from Snow and Ice!

Some people find it easier to shovel snow onto the roadway, hoping that the snowplow and traffic will get rid of the snow. This can be dangerous however, and the Highway Traffic Act prohibits the depositing of snow on the travelled portion of the road.

Parking on any municipal road is also prohibited from December 1st to April 15th to permit the proper removal of ice and snow. Please help us to keep our roads clear for the safety of everyone. After all, driving in the winter provides us all with enough challenges.
