As such, residents are reminded to store snow on their own property, when shovelling or plowing private sidewalks and driveways, said the city.
Under municipal bylaw 2011-219, it is not permitted to push snow onto banks or properties on the opposite side of the road. Accumulated snow from private plowing can interfere with sightlines and results in buildup of icy sections on the road.
Throwing snow directly onto public sidewalks and roads is strictly prohibited.
Greater Sudbury Transit reminds passengers to wait at a cleared area close to their bus stop, such as a driveway or crosswalk, if their stop is obstructed by snow. Drivers will stop at clearings close to the stop to enable passengers to board and exit the bus. Passengers are asked to signal as the bus approaches to help prepare the driver to stop.
Bus shelters, serving the greatest number of riders on Greater Sudbury Transit, are generally clear one to two days following the end of a snowstorm. Bus stops without shelters are usually not cleared of snow. There are approximately 130 bus shelters and 1,300 bus stops without shelters in the City of Greater Sudbury.
