WINNIPEG — Driving a snow-covered vehicle has a Manitoba teen singing more mellow than yellow.
RCMP tweeted Tuesday an officer pulled over the VW Beetle on the Perimeter Highway near Rosser Road at 8:30 a.m. for driving with an obstructed view.
A photo accompanying the tweet showed the vehicle had a covered windshield, except for a small area on the driver’s side. Both headlights were also obstructed by snow.
“For the safety of yourself as well as other motorists sharing the roads, it is important to clear all windows so that you can be extra vigilant and react as needed during these poor driving conditions,” police said in a follow-up tweet.
The teen was handed a $113 ticket and sent on their way.
