Clean that Snow off your Vehicle before Driving

snow covered car 2-17-15Driving around town with a vehicle covered in snow will most likely result in a fine. But besides the fine, there’s a serious

danger involved as well. Besides for being unable to clearly see drivers around you, with the frigid temperatures we’re facing, snow left on the vehicle may have turned to ice, causing even a greater hazard to motorists around you.

Failure to fully clear your vehicle of snow, is against the law.

Fines are not less than $25 or more than $75 for each offense regardless of whether any snow or ice is dislodged from the vehicle. Fines increase to $200 to $1,000 when injuries or property damage occur. Commercial motor vehicle drivers face fines ranging from $500 to $1,500 for each offense.
