The Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) reminds passenger car drivers to scrape off heavy amounts of snow and ice from vehicles before traveling, or face a possible $75 fine for having a car on the road loaded down with these icy elements.
This state law, which aims to prevent safety risks from these blowing winter hazards, pertains to passenger cars and other non-commercial vehicles. Fines may increase up to $1,000 for drivers who operate these vehicles when flying snow or ice from them causes personal injury or property damage.
A similar law pertaining to commercial vehicles is scheduled to go into effect later this year.
