First, I have no dog in this fight. I am not, nor have I ever been a "plow guy".

That being said... Neither the Town nor the State care where you plant your stakes. The job is to clear the roads for everyone and they can not be parsing every street to find property lines VIA stakes planted by residents.

FWIW, I pay my "plow guy" to clear the snow from a 'side' parking space' that is on the street. It is a space that is banned parking from Nov-Apr... but I want is cleared anyway.
