During the winter season, Public Works staff perform snow and ice removal on your roads.  Trucks with flashing blue lights are performing winter maintenance.  Please give them room to work.

Here are some tips to keep you and our crews safe this winter.

  • STAY BACK from working snowplows and other winter maintenance vehicles (i.e. trucks spreading salt or spraying anti-icing liquid) with flashing blue lights.  You'll see them on roads and highways before, during, and after a snowfall or storm.
  • NEVER PASS a working snowplow - it's very dangerous for you and the plow driver.  Sight lines and visibility can be significantly reduced by blowing snow and the ridge of snow that the plow creates.  Trying to pass between or around a snowplow could result in a severe - even fatal - collision.
  • BE PATIENT - it takes time to clear the roads after a snowfall.  If you're driving behind a snowplow, wait for it to finish its job.  Roads are plowed in sections, so you usually won't be stuck behind a plow for more than 20-30 minutes.

Please remember that you cannot leave snow or ice on the road when you are clearing your driveway.  The ridges may freeze and become a hazard to drivers.  In addition, please be courteous and do not deposit your snow on your neighbour's property.

Your valued assistance during the winter season will help the Township of South Stormont Public Works Department provide efficient and economical winter maintenance service.
