Cleaning Snow off Vehicles is Law in NJ
Law imposing fines for snow-covered vehicles is in effect
Once your driveway is cleared, your snow removal work is not over.
Under a law that went into effect in October of 2010, New Jersey drivers face fines for failing to clean snow and ice off their cars.
In the past, drivers would only be fined if snow and ice fell off their vehicle and caused damage or injury. Now motorists are expected to clean snow and ice off before hitting the road or face being slapped with a fine of $25 to $75.
The fines for damage or injury range from $200 to $1,000, or $500 to $1,500 for commercial drivers, according to New Jersey statute.
