Why Motorists Should Brush Snow and Ice from Their Vehicles Before Driving

Posted: February 28, 2019

A driver who is trying to drive a car with bad brakes can be a danger to everyone on the road. During the winter, it is common to see people driving in vehicles where the windows are barely cleaned off. In most areas, drivers can get ticketed for driving in that compromised position. But why is it so important for motorists to clean the snow and ice off of their windows anyways?

The Need To See

The most obvious reason for cleaning snow off of your car is to make sure that you are able to see everything around you while you are driving. Winter conditions can make driving difficult. That means that you need to be prepared to make sudden adjustments to your driving to avoid cars that have lost control. If you cannot see where you are going, you are not in a position to drive safely.

The Cars Around You

As you drive in a car covered with snow, the snow can blow off and cause dangerous conditions for other drivers. Some people who do not clean off their cars do not give much thought about where the snow goes. You might be driving your car full of snow and drop snow onto the windshield of a safe driver and cause an accident.

It Is The Law

There are laws in place regarding cleaning the snow off of car windows. Which means you may get a ticket for your snow-covered vehicle. Your situation could become much worse if you cause an accident because you did not clean the snow off your windows.
