We can plow more efficiently and effectively when vehicles are off the street. Vehicles left on the street slow down the program, causing more inconvenience to residents and increases the cost of the program.
For Green Route plowing we remove snow from the road meaning we must have vehicles off the street to do so properly. For this reason, vehicles left on Green Routes will receive a ticket and be towed to the nearest Grey Route at the owner’s expense.
For Grey Routes, snow is piled into windrows on both sides of the road so Operators will plow in vehicles left on Grey Routes. Plowing them in is more efficient and less costly than towing them; however, it does leave windrows further into the driving lane and will have a larger impact on on-street parking when plowing is complete.
Be a Snow Buddy and remind your neighbours when plows are coming. It will save everyone time and money.
