Shoveling snow onto streets could lead to potential falls and fines.
 
Police are reminding residents that the snow they shovel or snow blow from their property is not allowed to go on the road.
 
"Our main concern is the safety aspect," said Fort Saskatchewan municipal enforcement peace officer, Dereck Cummings. "You're also making more work for our city workers who are doing their due diligence."
 
Some of the dangers from moving the snow, ice and debris onto the roads include plugging gutters, storm drains and creating more ice.
 
"You can put it onto the boulevard or your own lawn, but just not the street," added Cummings.
 
Not following the law would result in a fine from the city, but causing a traffic or personal hazard could result in liability consequences.
 
The fine for people who move snow, ice and debris onto the street is $100 and for repeat offenders the fine is doubled.
