Hefty fines for not clearing front yard snow

In Australia we are approaching SUMMER! I can’t wait for the sunshine! This year has been dreadfully cold, even now – and it’s spring. On the other side of the equator they are approaching winter.

A lot of countries experience heavy snowfall and in Korea, residents who do not clear the snow in front of their home may face a nasty fine of up to 1 million won (about 1,000AUD). Currently residents don’t face snow fines but The National Emergency Management Agency plans to introduce fines so residents feel a responsibility to clear snow on their property.

Other countries have already put in place snow fines, in the US people can face $50-100 fines, Germany more than 500 euros ($700 dollars).
