‘Don’t Be An Idiot’ rule #2617: Do your best to clean snow off your windows, hood & roof before driving

Just some quick reminders:

  • Yes, you can get fined for driving with snow or ice covering your vehicle’s windows.
  • Yes, you can get fined if snow or ice chunks fly off the roof of your car.
  • Yes, you can get fined for your windows icing over after you’ve started driving and let it build up to the point you can barely see through.

That’s right — get out of the car and do it right this time, Neal!

Driving with snow on your hood can break/fly off or slide forward when accelerating, causing you (or someone else) to lose visibility.

When applying brakes, snow can come crashing forward — sliding off your roof & causing damage to your wipers or covering your windshield visibility, at the least. Always do your best to clean the ice off if/when you can!

Remember to always drive safe — not just for you & your passengers, but for those around you as well.
