And the use of the discarded cup holder shows the driver doesn't have a brush handy. Perhaps he/she will learn.

Someone should show him where Target and KMart and the like are - $15 will get him all the snow gloves and brush that he needs!

Anyone can ask twitter for a verified account now. You just have to provide a reason.

Representing a public agency would easily be approved as a reason.

If it's the driver's responsibility to have a safe veh, one assumes that this trooper also regularly pulls over vehicles for improperly secured load? Didn't think so.

It's the snow flying off problem. For example, you can still be ticketed if you clear off your rear window but leave a pile on the roof. This driver technically still had rear visibility with their side view mirrors, just as one would if driving a u-haul, or if you had a big box in the back seat.

What they should do is ticket every car that's parked in city limits. Even if the meter is fed. That's valuable real estate and we need to take it back!

MGLC 90 S.13 Impeded Operation

By on

I believe this is covered by the all inclusive MGLC 90 S 13 "Impeded Operation." Same as dog on lap, fuzzy dice hanging from windshield etc. I believe there was an amendment to S 13 for texting. AFAIK, it's still a $35 fine.

Meh. Got nothing on that guy in Wellesley from last year who cleared just enough of his FRONT windshield to see through.

"That guy"?

Unfortunately, I've seen many more than one "guy from Wellesley" doing this in Boston.
