Plowing snow into the ditches or onto the side of the roads puts our employees and the safety of the traveling public at risk. Concerns such liability, safety and equipment damage are factors.

A person who, without justification or excuse,
- Obstructs or deposits any material on a highway (as defined in the Act), or
- interferes with, breaks, cuts, or otherwise injures a highway,
is guilty of an offence.
