Shoveling Driveway Tip

Driveway Plowing Guidelines

Abiding by the following guidelines will help make the snow removal process easier, safer, and more effective for all:
  • Snow should be plowed or shoveled to the right side of the driveway as you are facing the intersecting roadway. By being plowed away from the direction of oncoming snowplows, this action will prevent the bulk of the snow from being pushed back into the driveway.
  • Eliminate snow piles at the driveway entrance, whenever possible. High accumulations of snow will obstruct the vision of motorists when exiting from the driveway and hinder the ability of oncoming motorists to see you pulling out of the driveway, creating another potential for accidents.
  • Do not push snow out onto roads at anytime. This creates hazardous driving conditions for all vehicles.
