Refresher: Plowing, Snow Parking in Norwalk

What's what on public roads when snow hits.

When an afternoon and evening storm dumps up to 10 inches of snow on Norwalk Friday, residents may want to study up on the city's parking and plowing policies—if only to avoid a pricey ticket.

Snow cleanup spans 255 miles of roadway, Norwalk officials said, and can take between 16 and 24 hours to carry out, from the end of the squall.

Of the city's 25 plow routes, main thoroughfares are tackled first—but motorists parked on all roadways, major or minor, are urged to park in driveways. If a Snow Emergency is declared, any and all cars parked on Emergency Snow Routes will be ticketed and/or towed.

The DPW often pushes snow in front of residents' driveways. It is the homeowners' job to clear the driveway, so officials recommend shoveling after plowing has been completed.

Residents are also required to clear the sidewalks in front of their homes.

Parking is not allowed in municipal lots after 2 a.m. and until the areas have been plowed.

There should also be roving enforcement officers travelling around town to catch the knuckleheads who shovel out their cars and driveways....and throw the snow back onto the street.
