When it snows, too often we are so focused on getting back to our normal lives we forget that all that white stuff impacts those around us as well. To wit, we would all do well to remember the “rules of the ‘winter’ road.”
Clean your sidewalks. A walk around Wilton Center on Monday revealed some difficult going. This is the responsibility of every owner whose property abuts a town sidewalk. Don’t forget the part between the sidewalk and a driveway. Too often pedestrians come across a mountain of snow that must be surmounted on their rounds. Clearing of ice and snow must be done within the first six hours after daylight after a storm. Not sure if this means you? There’s a map at town hall. It should be said, some sidewalks in town were absolutely spotless.
