By Pete Serzant, WLIP News

KENOSHA, WI (WLIP)–The Kenosha County Division of Highways reminds residents to not deposit snow and ice from driveways onto roadways or the highway shoulders.

Officials say that not only is it dangerous but it’s also illegal.

Doing so could earn you a 50 dollar fine but if that snow or ice causes an accident-you could be held liable for any injuries or damage caused.

County officials also remind motorists to stay at least 200 feet behind snow plows at all times.

Failing to do so could get you a 175 dollar fine and three points off your driver’s license.
