Police remind people it is an offence to deposit snow on the highway. In other words when you are shoveling out your drive you cannot throw the snow onto the street. This act causes a very dangerous situation for drivers and is against the law. There is a big difference between someone cleaning their drive out and some snow inadvertently getting onto the street and the act of throwing the snow on the street. The fine is $110.
