    Wouldn't it be easier to just see if there is a bylaw pertaining to this? County probably has a website with info re: everything.

    When we lived in Whitby the best place to store snow was in a vacant lot across the road, about 3 houses down. After doing my driveway (went up beside my house) I would push the snow from in front of my house and all my neighbour's houses and our sidewalks, over to the vacant yard. Worked fine for a number of years, then a new neighbour complained about me plowing HIS sidewalk....Duh

    Visit a shopping center late one night. Look around and make sure it is clear. Now give yourself sufficient room to get up to fifty five miles per hour before driving over one of the speed bumps. After you extract your upper body from the ceiling, say now that's why they don't want snow pushed across the road. People who push snow across roads do not generally do a clean and neat job. Most create a huge speed bump. Then along comes someone traveling at fifty five miles per hour and they are launched into low orbit.

    Maybe they shouldn't be driving that fast either?

    Why? If it is a legal speed limit on the road and the road conditions are clear why not drive legal speed limits? But now everything is fine and someone decides to clear their drive a day after the snow storm and pushes it across the road. Now all the road is clear till you hit what someone just pushed into the road.

    Just because it's a legal speed limit doesn't mean it's safe to drive that fast.

    i was also told by the guy who plows our roads for the township that is illegal to plow across the roads.

You get lazy idiots who plow across the road and don't clean up after themselves. This can leave a hard packed berm that is dangerous for vehicles traveling the road.

    If the road is clear and it is the legal posted speed then it is safe to drive that fast.

    I no matter what speed some one is traveling it is a hazard, if it is pushed into the road and freezes it is like hitting a block or an unsuspecting ice patch. It is a HAZARD! If you must push it across the road please just clean it up. One other thing it is easy to figure out who's driveway the snow came from and it should be noted in any accident report as a contributing factor. If it came from your driveway can you spell law suit?

    I agree, I've hit a few spots around here over the years and while never had an accident I know how easy someone could in the right conditions.
