Whether its snow, frost or ice it’s important to make sure the windows of your vehicle are completely clear before traveling. Knoxville Police Chief Dan Losada says cleaning off your car means the entire vehicle and not just a small peek hole on the windshield. He also encourages motorists to clean off the top of their vehicles so the snow does not fall off onto vehicles behind them which could potentially obstruct their vision as well. In addition to the safety hazards which are the most important factor, Losada says clearing off your vehicle completely can also save you a big ticket as it is illegal to have an obstructed view when driving.
