Haverford Township's Public Works Department is responsible for clearing approximately 165 miles of roads during snow storms. The process is time-consuming and expensive. Consequently, the Township utilizes brine and other techniques to pre-treat its roads, and works to clear roads of snow and ice as quickly as possible.
Do Not Shovel Snow Into Roadways
Township Ordinance No. 2629 makes it unlawful for any
property owner, resident, contractor, agent or employee to shovel, plow discharge or otherwise place snow into any street, roadway, sidewalk or alley within the Township of Haverford. The Township strictly enforces this ordinance.

Under the Code, it is unlawful, during the period of such emergency, for any person to park a motor vehicle or tractor, or to allow the vehicle to remain parked, on any highway or portion thereof, or to operate any motor vehicle or tractor on any such highway or portion thereof, unless the vehicle or tractor is equipped with adequate equipment to provide sufficient traction to keep the vehicle or tractor in motion so that other traffic on such highways will not be blocked or seriously impeded.
