(Hint: Be sure to clear snow and ice off your vehicle before heading out.) Fines are between $25 – $75 for each offense regardless of whether any snow or ice is dislodged from the vehicle.
Fines increase to $200 – $1,000 when injuries or property damage occur.
Commercial motor vehicle drivers face fines ranging from $500 to $1,500 for each offense.
The real reason is like most tickets,it helps create cash flow for the town. Its another way the government sticks their hand in your pocket. Just like the 5 cent plastic bag tax in NY
What is the exact law? Does only the roof only need to be clear from snow?
Because he was speeding?
1. You clearly don’t drive. Accidents happen and people have been killed. It is incredibly dangerous to have snow and ice on your car driving 65-75 MPH on a highway.
The law is COMMON SENSE!!!think a little bit maybe you’ll be able to figure out.
If you can’t understand that then maybe you shouldn’t be driving a car.
Take the few minutes to clean off the roof of your car. The reason why there is this law because it is dangerous — and often times deadly — when the ice slips off the roof and hits the car behind you. This is just common sense.
I almost lost control of my car when the easily 8″ of packed snow flew off the car in front of me
Sam is right that was me pulled over Kudos to Sam for guessing the right answer
I think he should get a secondary ticket for not using common sense
And how ’bout the fact that he can’t see anything out of his rear window??
