Council wishes to make ratepayers aware of the safety issues and consequences of pushing snow from a driveway on to the municipal road or shoulder. Piles of snow left on or near the road can freeze into a solid mass creating a hazardous situation for vehicles and snowplows. It also could increase the chance of drifting on to the roadway.
This hazard on a municipal road exposes those that use the road (residents, equipment operators etc.) to the risk of serious bodily injury and poses the risk of liability for the resulting damages to the party who pushed the snow on the road. Anyone who pushes snow on to a municipal road can also be liable for the costs for the R.M to remedy the damage done and can be fined under The Highways and Transportation Act, 1997.
Council appreciates your co-operation to keep our roads safe for all residents and R.M. staff.
On average, 13 people are killed on Saskatchewan farms each year. Of these fatal injuries, 75% involve machinery such as grain trucks, semis, tractors and combines. Most incidents occur in the farm yard and of all serious injuries that happen, 14% involve youth. (Statistics by the Saskatchewan Farm Injury Surveillance Program at the University of Saskatchewan.)
The Saskatchewan Safety Council has recently developed an interactive online safety training program for farmers and ranchers, and, it’s free.
