Snow Rules In Bozeman – We Don’t Want You To Get Ticketed!
This is from the Bozeman Police Department. Everything you need to know about snow!
With Snow Storm Brutus hitting Bozeman late last night and this morning, here’s some tips to make our streets and sidewalks safe for all drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians.
When possible, park your cars off the street to allow snow plows to clear the streets, especially important during heavy snow storms.
All snow and ice must be removed from sidewalks in all business districts within the city by 9:00 a.m. of the next business day, by 12:00 noon of the next non-business day or within four business hours after any snow storm, whichever period is shorter.
All snow and ice must be removed from residential sidewalks in the city within the first 24 hours after any snow storm.
Plowing or shoveling snow from your parking lot, driveway or sidewalk into the street is illegal as it can cause a serious traffic hazard to passing motorists. The snow fell onto your property, so please keep it on your property.
Snow plows cannot lift and carry snow from one area to another. The plow pushes the snow and the driver places it in an area most suitable to expedite the plowing and opening the streets for the majority of residents in the timeliest manner.
If possible, wait until the road has been plowed before cleaning out the end of your driveway. There is no practical way to plow the street without leaving snow in your driveway.
