A snow emergency does three things for the community:
- The purpose is to establish snow emergency routes by restricting the use of certain highways during periods of snow or ice emergency to vehicles which are properly equipped (mud and snow tires) to minimize the safety hazard.
- It restricts parking on certain collector roads during winter storms that could result in no parking fines or having a vehicle towed from blocking the road.
- Snow Emergency Routes that are designated with signs through Township Ordinances must have ALL VEHICLES removed from those streets. Click here to see a list of streets designated as SNOW EMERGENCY.
