It just snowed and you need to get rid of it. Where do you put it? Well, the street is one option but it's also the option that could get you a ticket.
According to the city of Yakima snow removal policies:
Don’t throw snow from your sidewalk or driveway into the street – it’s against the law.
This comes from the Don't Take it Personally section of this article. And, trust me, I totally get it. Some snow plow comes through and builds a wall of snow separating the street and your driveway. What do you do? Well, you return the snow from whenst it came, right back onto the street. Well, that's not allowed. It's annoying and often unavoidable but illegal for safety's sake.
It doesn't go on to say what will happen, exactly. Not sure if it's an automatic fine if they catch you doing this your maybe a misdemeanor which still isn't fun, but don't do it. Just pile the snow back onto your lawn and make a big ol' snowman out of it. Just don't put it back into the street.
