Snow-Covered Sidewalks Pose Extra Problems for People with Disabilities

For people with disabilities, navigating the sidewalks following a big snow storm can be less problematic than trying to operate a wheelchair in just a bit of snow or slush.

That’s because the city of Rochester clears sidewalks if four or more inches of snow falls.  It’s up to residents to remove snow from sidewalks with less than four inches of snow, and the city this year reminded residents about that policy.
