The Minnesota Department of Transportation has issued a reminder to everyone, including commercial snow removal operators, that it's against state law and many local ordinances to deposit snow onto a public roadway. Doing so, MnDOT officials said, can create a slippery area, frozen rut or bump that could contribute to vehicle or pedestrian accidents.
Violations are misdemeanors and liability may extend to both the property owner and the person or company who placed the snow improperly.
MnDOT suggests placing as much snow as possible from the end of the driveway downstream in the direction of traffic and clearing an area upstream from the driveway to create an open pocket.
