Use that Ice Scraper Or Face Fines

This kind of thing could get you a fine of up to $1,000 in New Jersey.
This kind of thing could get you a fine of up to $1,000 in New Jersey.
With a winter storm approaching Tuesday, police departments across New Jersey are reminding drivers to remove any snow or ice that may have accumulated atop their cars or face fines up to $75.

It is illegal in the Garden State to leave snow and ice on your car while driving, whether that snow falls off the car or not. Drivers who fail to comply face fines of $25 to $75 for each offense. 

If the ice and snow dislodges from your car while you're driving and causes property damage or injury to others, you could face fines ranging from $200 to $1,000.

For more information on the ice and snow law, see the Department of Traffic Safety's website at: http://www.nj.gov/oag/hts/ice-and-snow.html

That potentially flying ice is a road hazard. I know first hand having once had some flying directly at my windshield. I don't think this law is enforced. The mutts that are too lazy to clean their vehicles are the same ones who let mold grow all over their homes, and leave their leaves piled all months of the year and throw major garbage w.o. ever calling the township bulk pickup. Yah I mean you, 333 Shawnee Drive. if you have the nerve to pull that crap throwing the contents of a room to the curb for Thanksgiving holiday with no regard for neighbourhood, then I have the nerve to call you out on it in this public forum. Ocean County has more than their share of mutts. And that is it not intended as insult to canines. OK Ms. Patch, let's see how long it takes for you to pull this comment! Anyone who sees this article go look at that property for yourself.....looks like that for MONTHS now. Code enforcement totally ineffectual, and btw no Sandy victim there, just a shiftless piney!
