Candia Police: High snow banks and visibility access

The Police Department has been receiving complaints in reference to high snow banks and visibility access.  Residents, whether plowing their driveways or hiring contactors, are urged to:

  • Refrain from pushing or placing snow back into the street.  Doing so not only creates hazards for drivers, but also makes it difficult for the highway department to keep the streets clean
  • Maintain proper access to your mailbox.  Keeping this area open will also provide greater visibility of the mail box allowing the plow truck drivers to see them and avoid them
  • If you have curbside trash pickup, make sure your trash cans are well behind the road edge or in the driveway so the plow will not hit them.
  • Check your roofs for excessive snow loads.  Existing snow accumulations can become much heavier once they begin to melt or become saturated with water from rain and wet snow.
  • Keep all chimneys and vents clear to prevent carbon monoxide from backing up into the building. Some vents, such as pellet stove vents, may exit the building through a wall and are susceptible to being blocked by excessive snow buildup on the outside of the building.
  • Many driveways have high snow banks and visibility is difficult when exiting.  Try to find someone to guide you out, if possible.
  • Because of this limited visibility, we are urging drivers to be aware of residents pulling out of driveways.  Please slow down and be alert.
