Can I shovel or blow snow into or across the street?

No. It is unlawful to deposit snow on public roadways per Minnesota Highway Traffic Regulations. Residents observed doing such activities are subject to a citation and fine.

State Statute 160.2715 Subd (5):  Misdemeanors: It shall be unlawful to obstruct any public street or highway or to deposit any snow or ice thereon; and, 169.42 Subd (1): Littering:  No person shall throw, deposit, place, or dump upon any street or highway any snow, ice, etc.
