Mississauga Driver Busted For Driving Snow-Covered Car Like This
A driver in Mississauga is being called out by Peel police for his snow-covered windshield following a nasty mid-April ice storm.
“Everyone is pretty frustrated with the weather this week but that’s no excuse to be driving like that,” said Const. Bally Saini.
The incident took place on Apr. 17 at 7 a.m. in the city’s northwest end.
That’s when an officer from 11 Division spotted the car at Glen Erin Dr. and Derry Rd. in Meadowvale.
“Not being able to have a clear view can not only put yourself but others on the road in danger,” said Saini.
“Take the extra minute or two and clean off your windshield.”
The 33-year-old driver is facing a windshield obstructed charge under the Highway Traffic Act.
The penalty: A $110 fine.
Police shared the image on social media, writing “you need a CLEAR windshield to drive!”
Naturally, the Twitterverse weighed in.

The incident took place on the same day that flying ice broke through the windshield of a bus near the QEW and Erin Mills Pkwy., prompting OPP to remind motorists to clear ice from their vehicles.
