Why is it that snow is being removed from school yards? I would think that if the City Of Edmonton dumped snow windrows over the fences of school yards & off of streets, traffic safety in winter would be much better & cheaper b/c vehicles would have less accidents. Thus insurance costs for drivers would be lower & City hauling costs to remove the snow from the streets would definitely be much lower, thus saving on the overall budget & operational costs such as gas, diesel, wages, & overtime, as well as general maintenance costs IV City owned snow equipment.
