Muzzle This Idiot
If your side street is still covered with snow, take a look at your neighbor before blaming the city.
City plows working for seven days straight, ending Sunday morning, cleared all 3,300 miles of side streets, said Matt Smith, spokesman for Chicago Streets and Sanitation Department. They are prepared to plow and salt tonight if there is more snow, he said.
“On the side streets we have found instances where people are pushing snow back into the streets” while shoveling out their cars, Smith said. “This is dangerous and not being a good neighbor. Please put snow on the parkway.”
And how about this quote:
Despite reports that the city’s budget crunch was going to slow snow removal, plows and salt trucks “hit those side streets with more force than we ever have,” Smith said.
“These are Siberian conditions. And I don’t think they do side streets in Siberia. We do."
