How You Can Help

  • During periods of heavy snowfall or other extreme weather conditions, please have patience. Crews are working as quickly as possible to clear snow from your area.
  • Watch for snow removal signs in your area and ensure your vehicles are not parked on the road while crews are at work clearing your street.
  • Obey any temporary parking restrictions that may be in place in specific County hamlets or residential areas by paying attention to “no parking” signage. Learn more about snow clearing in County hamlets here.
  • Please use extreme caution when approaching snow removal equipment and reduce your speed around plows, graders and other equipment.
  • When near snow removal equipment, motorists and pedestrians are advised to follow the safety tips below:
    • Stay three car lengths behind equipment to allow for a safe stopping distance.
    • Never cut off a snow plow.
    • Assume the snowplow driver has NOT seen you.
    • If you see a snowplow, move off of the sidewalk and into a yard where you can be seen.
    • Do NOT play on, or make forts or tunnels in, roadside snow banks.
    • NEVER approach a snowplow, even when it has stopped.
