Snow Plowing Your Driveway

Snow Plowing Your Driveway

Wisconsin Statute 346.94(5),(7) applies to miscellaneous prohibited act of placing injurious substance on a roadway. This section reads, “No person shall place or cause to be placed upon a highway any foreign substance which is or may be injurious to any vehicle or part thereof.”

This language applies to plowing or blowing snow from driveways onto or across County, State or Town roadways. This practice is illegal and dangerous to passing motorists. In addition, the Town owned snow removal equipment may be damaged upon impact with the compacted snow or ice ridges left behind.

Please refrain from plowing or snow blowing your driveways onto or across the roadway.

Thank you for your cooperation in helping us maintain safe roadways.

Have a safe winter!
The Trade Lake Town Board
