Danger: What’s the Michigan Law on Clearing Snow from Vehicles?

When you cleared your car, did you remember to remove the snow from the roof? If you didn’t, you might get a ticket.

Michigan is one of 12 states that require roof-clearing. And if you’ve ever been driving on the freeway and see a chunk of ice break loose and hurtling toward your car, you know why. Injuries can result, and even if it’s just fluffy snow that’s blowing off your roof, it can reduce the vision of the motorist behind you.

Michigan law is specific about what you need to know.

 Motorists are also required to completely clear snow and ice from windshields and other windows, and make sure snow is cleared from headlamps and taillights.
