Notice to the Public...PRIVATE PROPERTY OWNERS SNOW DEPOSITED ON ROADWAYS LIABILITY



Notice to the Public

PRIVATE PROPERTY OWNERS

SNOW DEPOSITED ON ROADWAYS LIABILITY

Snow dumped, plowed, blown, or shoveled onto a public road can create a hazard for motorists and snow plows. This includes snow removed from a private drive that ends up on the roadway. Compacted snow can become very difficult to remove, causing slippery spots. Snow plows can also be forced into the opposite driving lane when hitting compacted frozen snow deposited on roadways. Depositing snow onto a public road can be punishable as a misdemeanor (Minn. Stat. 169.42 and 160.2715). Furthermore, the person responsible for depositing snow onto the roadway may also be liable in a civil action lawsuit if damages or injuries occur as a result of that action.


Your understanding of and cooperation with the County snow plow operators is appreciated, as is your concern for your own, and your neighbors’ safety.
