Some people walk by choice; others walk because they have to. Either way, it makes a big difference to have cleared sidewalks to walk on. Some property owners realize this and act accordingly. As it happens, it’s also the law. You are legally obligated to do it. Compliance, however is pretty spotty. Anyone walking to work or school in the days after last week’s heavy snow was forced often to plow through snow or to walk on the street. Bad news either way. Perhaps some enforcement of the law is in order.
