BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota officials are reminding landowners that it’s illegal to push snow on highway rights-of-way.

The state Transportation Department and the Highway Patrol says doing so “can exaggerate the drifting problems experienced on state highways and can create obstructions for motorists.”

Rights-of-way include roadways, ditches and back slopes on state highways.

State law prohibits a person from obstructing any public highway or right-of-way. A violation of the law is a class B misdemeanor, which is punishable by up to 30 days in jail and a $1,500 fine.
