New Law: Clean The Snow & Ice Off Your Car Or Get A Fine

snow covered carVIDEO: New Jersey drivers who don’t clear snow and ice from their cars could soon get tickets. Gov. Jon Corzine signed a law Tuesday putting into place fines of $25 to $75 for drivers with “dangerous accumulations” of snow or ice on their cars or trucks. Enforcement isn’t to begin for a year , giving truckers time to install snow-clearing equipment. The law is believed to be the first of its kind in the nation. New Jersey and several other states have laws that impose stiff fines on drivers if snow flies from their vehicles and causes damage or an injury.

  1. This “type: of law has been around for years. It is sad how they needed to put the “specifics” into writing because some drivers haven’t a clue. It’s called, “common sense,” God gave you the potential, why not utilize such a simple task?

    From the New Jersey Driver’s Manual:

    -ice and snow: Motorists of private vehicles face fines of $200 to $1,000 for each time ice flies from their vehicles and causes death, injury or property damage. Fines for commercial owners and operators range from $500 to $1,500 (N.J.S.A. 39:4-77.1).
    All snow and ice must be removed from the entire vehicle. New Jersey law states that a motorist is responsible for any ice that flies from his/her vehicle and causes death, injury or property damage (N.J.S.A. 39:4-77.1).
