TRAFFIC CONTROL ORDER NO. PA 27-07-92
The Gogebic County Road Commission and the Gogebic County Sheriff’s Department would like to remind all property owners that piling snow high along public roadways and shoulders or pushing the snow to the opposite side of the road can cause hazardous conditions for motorists. THESE ACTIONS ARE AGAINST THE LAW (Act 82 of Public Acts of 1978) and violators leave themselves open to fines and lawsuits for public liability and property damage.
It is recommended that when cleaning your driveway that the snow be pushed away from the public road and to the sides of the driveway for its full length. If there is no room for storage of the snow along your driveway length, then instead of pushing it onto the public road, the snow should be hauled away.
All property owners and persons hired by the property owner to remove snow are responsible for maintaining safe traffic conditions and preventing careless snow removal techniques.

Starting February 13, 2019, Michigan’s Move Over law expanded to require drivers to slow down and move over when passing emergency, maintenance, and utility vehicles on the road.
Drivers now have to slow down to 10 mph below the posted speed limit as well as yield their lane, if possible, when passing police or emergency vehicles, roadside tow trucks, garbage trucks, maintenance, and utility vehicles that have amber lights flashing. Failure to do so could result in a civil offense subject to a $400 fine.
