Violence between a snowplow and a resident in Milton results in an arrest.

It appears that some residents woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning due to last night's blizzard. Early on Saturday, a snowplow was clearing the streets in Milton, which resulted in some driveways being partially blocked with piles of snow. This caused one nearby resident to become unhappy with the results, leading to his rage causing him to approach the snowplow and smash one of its windows with his fist.

At approximately 8 a.m. on March 4th, 2023, Halton police responded to a call in the area of Woodward Ave/Fitzgerald Cres. in Milton, with a city truck also arriving on the scene to assist with the incident. After conducting further investigations, the police arrested the man and took him into custody.

According to the Town's website, during significant weather events like snowstorms, Milton's plow operators work to clear snow on roadways to keep traffic flowing, and they do not intentionally block driveways with snow. The snow is pushed to the right side of the road to keep it away from traffic, but sometimes it can cause windrows, which are piles of snow at the end of a resident's driveway.

Within 24 hours of snowfall, residents are required to remove snow from their sidewalks and driveways but should not move it to the road, as stated in By-law No. 115-2005.
