It is illegal to dump snow on highways in New Brunswick
When people clear their driveways by pushing snow onto highways, it can cause serious traffic hazards. It’s against the law to put snow or any obstruction on a highway. Fines range up to $2,500. Please don’t dump snow on the road! 


Do you own a Rural Mail Box and/or Civil Address Number?
During snow plowing operations, Department of Transportation and Infrastructure crews do their best to avoid damaging or disturbing rural mail boxes and civic address numbers. Should damage occur the department assumes no responsibility.
