Baltimore fines for unshoveled sidewalks after snow are a little known fact, but an important one.

Baltimore City ordinance states that sidewalks are to be cleared six hours after a snowstorm, per an article in the Baltimore Business Journal.

Due to the magnitude of the snowstorm this time, though, there was an extension to the deadline.

Fines were due to be levied, though, beginning Wednesday, January 27, 2016.

Fines for unshoveled walks are $50 for residents and $100 for commercial property owners.

Here is the information for the Baltimore County sidewalk shoveling law.
