    It makes walking my dog a real bitch. And screw the mailman right? It's common courtesy.

    When I lived in State College PA there was a city law about it -- something like you had to shovel/plow the walk in front of your yard within 24 hours of a snowfall. I don't remember the details. That was my first experience living in an area with lots of snow so I just assumed that most places in "snow world" had similar laws.

    There are no laws in my city that I'm aware of. At least not any that are enforced. I'd say it was pretty much 50/50 between sidewalks that were cleared and those that were a foot deep in snow..

    In my community you can be shot a Noon the day after the snowfall if your sidewalk isn't cleared. But then again, we don't HAVE any sidewalks.....

    Unless you are too old.

    In point of fact many communities have done away with such laws and (I think) death by heath attack of the elderly from shoveling has dropped.

    we have the 24 hour rule here in Des Moines. Shovel your walk with in 24 hours of a one inch snowfall. Otherwise the city does it and you recieve a bill. They have a program for the elderly and disabled. Volunteers come and do it for free. Of course I do mine and both of my elderly neighbors.

    When I was a kid some lady just down the street from me, made national news by suing her husband for not shoveling the sidewalk after she tripped and fell.
    I don't really remember the outcome, bUt I think she was allowed to persue her case and won.
