1000 Words: The person who won’t clear snow off the car

You know the type. You usually end up behind him/her.

A vehicle, with a large chunk of snow on its top, drives along Route 20 after digging out after a massive snow fall in Lancaster, N.Y. Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2014. Another two to three feet of snow is expected in the area. Gary Wiepert / AP

    The driver in the attached picture does a better job than many Minnesotans with just an inch on their windows.

    They’ll regret it when the warmth of the heaters inside melt the snow in contact with the roof, and when they go to stop it all slides in front of their windshield and they can’t see… (not that that happened to me once)

    I believe the police will actually give you a ticket if your windows are not cleared properly on your car and you don’t clear excessive snow from the roof of your car because of the danger you pose to other drivers.

    There is nothing more dangerous than being blinded by a large chunk of snow landing on your windshield because of a lazy driver.

    I’ve never seen anyone pulled over for that but one can always hope…..

    I remember once driving through Red Wing during a snow storm. An old man (in an old sedan) didn’t clear any snow off of his car. He could only see ahead, as the windshield wipers did their job (sort of). Anyway, I was at a 4 way stop intersection with this gentleman. Of course he couldn’t see the others at said intersection, so he decided at this point to get out of his car and clear the windows – SLOWLY, and smack dab in the middle of the intersection. Traffic was pretty backed up – by Red Wing standards at least.

    I love this guy/gal and this photo. It’s like statement headwear for your auto.
