NORTH ARLINGTON - Officials in a Bergen County town are cracking down on residents who throw snow from sidewalks and driveways onto freshly plowed roads.

North Arlington authorities are asking for the public's help to keep roads clear for emergency vehicles during the storm.

Mayor Peter Massa is reminding people that it is illegal to dump snow into the street because it poses a safety hazard. It means plows have to come back and emergency vehicles can have a tougher time navigating roads.

The ordinance also says that during snowfall of 5 inches or more, residents must move their vehicles from those streets.

Keeping the streets clear in North Arlington is such a priority that one councilman is considering forming a volunteer committee that would clear off and move the cars of the elderly from borough streets.
