CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – A warning for drivers, you could be fined if you don’t clear the snow off the roof of your car. The ticket is $200.
Our 22News crew saw several drivers in Hampshire County with snow on their roofs. It puts other drivers in danger when you’re traveling at high speeds. The snow can fly off your car and onto the car behind you, so they can’t see.
Ned Phillips-Jones of Carlisle told 22News, “I’ve noticed that it doesn’t take much snow at all to obscure your own windshield. If you come to a stop and it’s melted, and it obscures your view.”
Sheets of ice falling off your cars have been known to even break the windshields of drivers behind them. So remember to clear the snow.
