Ontario Police Can Fine $110 If You Don't Clear Snow Off Your Car

Winter has officially arrived, which means all vehicle owners should be busting out their snow brushes. 

Ontario police are now warning drivers of the hefty fines they can face for failing to clear snow off their cars.

Halton Regional Police tweeted out an image on Sunday of a driver's rearview window completely covered in snow.

The individual was pulled over and received a $110 fine for the unsafe driving practice. 

The Lambton OPP echoed a similar warning earlier this month after handing out the same fine to another driver whose vehicle was also covered in snow

"A snowbrush is essential when operating a motor vehicle in Ontario," wrote the police in a tweet. "Please obtain one and use it so all road users can get to their destination safely!" 

If you're planning on heading out today, make sure you have your brush on hand because the province is in the middle of a hefty snowstorm. 

Parts of Ontario are expected to see a dumping of 25 centimetres by Tuesday.
