Why are there large piles of snow left by my driveway?

Drivers have been trained and instructed in the operating of snow plow vehicles. The only place to put snow from the street is along the sides of the road. It is not the intent of the driver to block you in or to cover your freshly shoveled driveway or sidewalks. In order to clear streets, snow must be pushed to the edge of the road.  We encourage neighbors to work together to keep driveway approaches and sidewalks cleared off for the safety of your neighborhood. Also please keep parked cars off the road during and after a snowstorm. (SCC 11-20-010)
