Windshield Obstruction Minor Misdemeanor

Did you know you can be fined up to $150.00 and charged with a minor misdemeanor for failing to properly clean your windshield?

In Ohio it is illegal to drive while having your windshield obstructed with anything non transparent. Snow and ice covering your windshield qualifies as an obstruction and could land you a minor misdemeanor with a fine up to $150.00.

Proper Maintenance

Make sure your vehicle is in good working order. Make sure your heater and defrost are working properly. Make sure your wiper blades are new and installed properly. Allow your vehicle to warm up so as to melt the ice and snow from your windshield. Make sure your wiper blades can clear your windshield. When all of these are in check, you can now proceed with caution.

Never Hurry

When bad weather comes to your location, do not allow yourself to be in a hurry and neglect the safety of yourself and others. Take extra time to allow for your vehicle to warm up. Take extra time to travel at a slower speed than you normally would. Remember, your safety is more important that trying to meet a timeline. It's OK to be late in bad weather circumstances.

Safety First

Even if you never get a ticket for windshield obstruction, it is simply not worth risking your safety while driving with snow and ice on your windshield. So, take extra time, warm up your vehicle and do not be in a hurry.

Summary: Ohio law says it is a minor misdemeanor to drive with your windshield obstructed. Always practice safety when driving.
