REMINDER: Clean snow from the top of your car — it’s the law

Drivers are being reminded about the legal requirement to remove snow and ice from hoods, trunks and roofs or face state fines and penalties. The law applies to motorists operating passenger and of commercial vehicles.

Drivers are exempt from the fines when the snow, sleet and freezing rain begins or continues while the vehicle is traveling. Parked vehicles are also exempt from the required removal of ice and snow.
