Clear you’re Windshield

The most important function of your windshield is to allow you to navigate safely.  Remember, that operating a vehicle with a snow-covered windshield is not only dangerous, but against the law.  During the winter months, make sure you have a snow brush and ice scraper in your vehicle.  Motorists in a hurry often only clear the windshield; please take the extra time to clear all windows of your vehicle.

It is an offence to drive with an obstructed view.  Having no clear view to the front, sides or rear of your vehicle may result in a $110 fine.
