Avoid pushing snow onto state highways

LARAMIE, Wyo. - The Wyoming Department of Transportation is issuing a reminder that it is a violation of state law to place snow on state roadways.

WYDOT has received many reports this month across southeast Wyoming of people pushing snow into the traffic lanes of state highways.

State statute 36-10-401 stipulates that anyone who obstructs a public road or highway, common street or alley, public bridge or navigable river in a way that makes it inconvenient or dangerous to pass is breaking the law. Each violation is punishable by a fine of up to $100 and a jail sentence of up to three months.
