Proposed Law Would Fine Drivers With Snow On Their Vehicle
It's always been said that during the winter you are supposed to clear your car off before you pull out of the driveway or your workplace. Sometimes you just don't have the time. Well, this could be dangerous for other drivers on the road and NY State lawmakers are taking notice. There is a proposed law that would fine drivers $150 for a lack of snow maintenance on their vehicle.
According to Syracuse.com,
Drivers could be fined at least $150 if they are caught with 3 inches or more of snow or ice on the roof or trunk of their car, under one of the four bills pending in the state Legislature. A driver who gets in an accident with snow accumulated on their car could be fined up to $1,200.
The law would have a stipulation in which it would not apply if the snow was falling in that present moment. The bill is being sponsored by several legislators in Syracuse, which makes sense considering it's known as the snowiest city in New York. What do you think of this law? Do you agree that it should be three inches or more. After all three inches isn't THAT much.
