VERNON, B.C. — RCMP are reminding drivers it’s illegal and dangerous to drive with snow on your vehicle.

A police officer stopped a vehicle covered in snow except for a small spot on the windshield on Highway 97 north of Vernon on Sunday.

“Not only was the man attempting to drive a snow covered vehicle, he was going 30 km over the posted speed limit,” says Cst. Jocelyn Noseworthy.

The driver was issued a ticket for driving without due care, and he cleaned his vehicle off before departing.
