It’s the Law: Remove Snow and Ice From Your Vehicle in New Jersey

Personal Injury Lawyers serving Englishtown, Newark, Jersey City, Monmouth & Middlesex Counties, and nearby areas of New Jersey


You’re running late for work and you see that your car is covered in snow. It may be tempting to clear it off in a haphazard manner, leaving patches of ice on the hood or roof. But responsible drivers know that snow and ice can fly off a moving vehicle, causing damage to people and property.

In New Jersey, it’s against the law to drive with ice or snow on your vehicle. Police offers can and will issue fines to motorists who fail to clear off their cars.
