Winter Road Maintenance 

The parking of a vehicle on a roadway interfering with winter maintenance activities is an infraction of the Highway Traffic Act. 

Section 170. (1) of the act states, "No person shall park, stand or stop a vehicle on roadway" and (12), "despite the other provisions of this section, no person shall park or stand a vehicle on a highway in such a manner as to interfere with the movement of traffic or the clearing of snow from the highway."

Please be sure to park vehicles in such a way that the Township Roads Department can perform snow plowing and de-icing operations in an efficient and safe manner.

Deposit of Snow and Ice on a Roadway

The blowing of snow and or pushing of snow across roads and streets is not only a safety hazard, it is also against the law as stated in the Ontario Highway Traffic Act. 

The blowing of snow or pushing of snow across roads, streets and sidewalks creates unnecessary hazards to the travelling public in South Glengarry. 

Placement of Garbage and Recycling Bins

During winter months do not place garbage and recycling bins on the roadway. This creates a hazard and interferes with snow plow operations. 

Damaged Mailboxes

The Township of South Glengarry will replace mailboxes that are knocked over or damaged by snow plows. Mailboxes that are damaged or knocked down by heavy snow are not replaced by the Township. For more information, contact Roads Manager Chris LeBlanc at 613-930-3445.
