Why Should You Clean the Snow Off Your Vehicle?

Because it's the LAW!!!

  In the winter it is important to clear all snow and ice from your vehicle. This not only prevents a hazard from snow and ice that may fall from your vehicle, it also provides  for an unobstructed view.

Driving with snow on your vehicle roof could land you a fine and points, but could be even worse if you are involved in an accident because of snow falling off your vehicle the police may prosecute for careless or inconsiderate driving.

When snow or ice is dislodged or falls from a moving vehicle and strikes another vehicle or pedestrian causing death or serious bodily injury the  vehicle  operator can  be subject to a fine of not less than $200 nor more than $1,000 for each offense.

 This  should give all drivers that extra incentive to remove the snow from most parts of theirvehicle  before they set off.

 AND Turn On Your Headlights:  
A change in the law recently invoked that when your windshield wipers are on, so should your lights.
