Winter snow removal is a huge task for Tk̓emlúps te Secwépemc (TteS) small crew. TteS responsibility to public roads, businesses, and elders driveways continues to grow.
TteS first priority is to keep the arterial roads open so that traffic and emergency vehicles can move as needed.
Help out snowplow operators with the following tips:
- Give distance. Snow plows and sanders need extra space to make wide turns. Keep your distance and ensure the operator sees you.
- Keep curb free from personal property, debris, and garbage bins in areas to be plowed.
- Shovel snow onto your property. Not the street.
- Pile snow on the right side of your driveway (facing the road) when shoveling. This allows you to see any oncoming traffic as you back out and, when plows go by, they won’t drag your shoveled piles of snow back into your driveway.
Help Your Neighbours
Give your neighbours a hand shoveling snow, especially if they are elders or have limited mobility.
Avoid parking on the street to allow plows and salt trucks room to safely clear streets.
Talk to your neighbours about all parking on one side of the road. Keeping one side curb free allows for better snow plow access. It also helps avoid possible snow pileup on your car from the snow plow.
