As the last few sports cars pull into the garage for the winter, the city is reminding residents to put their curb ramps away too.
 
The ramps must be removed before the first snowfall, which, according to the recent forecast models, could be as early as today (October 11).
 
They can freeze to the road and curb, causing a hazardous issue for snow and ice control operations over the winter.
 
Removing curb ramps is the law, with Traffic Enforcement Bylaw C4-09, Section 7(a) reading, "No person shall throw, drop, place or cause or permit to be thrown, dropped or placed any object that may be considered reasonably dangerous to the welfare or safety of the public onto any highway or public property within the city limits."
 
Options for those who have cars that still need a bit of help clearing the curb can always experiment with taking the curb at an angle or creating a makeshift ramp from the ice and snow windrow from the grader.
