Now that the weather is getting colder and snow is coming, it is important to know the laws in New Jersey regarding snow and ice removal on cars.
In New Jersey, the law now requires that motorists remove all ice and snow from their vehicle before driving, especially from the hood, windows and roof.
Motorists who fail to do so face fines of $25.00 to $75.00 for each offense, regardless of whether the ice and snow is dislodged from the vehicle. If flying ice or snow causes property damage or injury to others, motorists face fines of $200 to $1,000 for each offense. There are approximately 500 fatalities in the United States per year due to icy road conditions.
Additionally, flying ice or snow can cause a car accident, resulting in injury or death to motorists on the roadway.
You could be sued if you cause an accident or injure or kill someone. That is why it is important to be safe and remove all ice and snow off of your car every single time before you drive.
If you or someone you know has been injured in an accident as a result of snow or ice that became dislodged from a vehicle on the roadway, seek an attorney immediately.
