Can you get a ticket for not clearing snow off your car?

 
 
It is [] illegal to drive with your windows blocked by snow or ice. The Highway Traffic Act, Section 74 states that “No person shall drive a motor vehicle upon a highway, (a) unless the windshield and windows either side of the compartment containing the steering wheel (all windows)..... afford the driver a clear view to the front and side of the motor vehicle; and (b) unless the rear window is in such condition to afford the driver a clear view to the rear...”

In other words all the windows must be kept clear to afford the driver an unobstructed view. This includes snow and ice along with signs, trinkets hanging from the rear view mirror, etc. that some people actually stick in their windows.

To avoid being charged under Section 74 and to be as safe as possible, always clean all the snow off your vehicle.

This rule also applies to keeping the inside of the windows clear of fog or frost.
