We know you might be in a hurry, lazy, or whatever excuse you might want to use. But, you need to make sure ALL THE SNOW is cleared from your car before you hit the road. Or you could get a ticket. Windows, roof, hood, and even scrape the ice from windows and rearview mirrors as well. Nothing can impair your vision, and nothing from your car can fly off and impair the vision of others. See below!
