Why did the plow fill my driveway with snow?

City plows are set to push snow to the right in order to remove it from the roadway. 

The best way to ensure that snow doesn’t get pushed back onto your driveway or sidewalk is to pile snow on the right side of the driveway when facing the street when shoveling.
