There might also be a city/county ordinance on this, too. You didn’t indicate exactly what law the cop cited you for violating, so it’s hard to make specific comments on it. But unless the snow was extremely deep, I doubt the court will buy the argument that you could not use the sidewalk. Even if you have to walk through some snow, walking on the sidewalk is safer than walking/jogging on the roadway.
