WATCH NOW: Move Your Cars Off Islip Town Roads During a Snowstorm

During a state of emergency, residents are reminded that it is a violation of Town Code to leave a vehicle on the road while the state of emergency is in effect. Vehicles left on the road may be ticketed and/or towed.

Please move your car off the road and into your driveway or onto your lawn. You CAN park on your lawn during a state of emergency.

Leaving your car on the road is a potential danger to your vehicle and the safety of the plow operator, and is inconsiderate to those who are doing the right thing to the ensure roadways are adequately plowed.
