  • Prohibits snowplow operators from depositing snow in front of certain access points used by persons with disabilities.
In Committee
Crossed Over
2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill prohibits snowplow operators or operators of equipment used for the removal of snow on a public roadway, public walkway, or on private property open to the public or to which the public is invited, from depositing snow or causing snow to be deposited on any access ramp, curb cut, special parking space, or other improvement designed to provide access to persons with disabilities. An operator who fails to comply with the provisions of this bill will be fined $250 for the first offense and $500 for each subsequent offense. The removal of snow from public roadways, public walkways, and other areas open to the public is a critical service during an emergency snow event. However, snow removal activities that cause snow deposits to obstruct access ramps, curb cuts, special parking spaces, and other improvements designed to provide access to persons with disabilities creates potential health and safety risks and impedes the mobility of many New Jersey residents.
