Can I move snow from my driveway to the ditch across the road?
No. Per the Michigan Vehicle Code section 257.677a which reads, "...a person shall not remove or cause snow to be removed, snow, ice or slush onto or across a roadway in a manner which obstructs the:
1) "safety vision of the driver of a motor vehicle" - meaning, you must not create or leave high banks along the edge of the road.
2) "or on any roadway or highway" meaning, all snow coming off your personal property must remain on your property! Snow removal operations must NOT leave piles of snow in the road or ridges on the road.
