Wisconsin Snow Removal Violation Could Cost You $181
If you're driving in Wisconsin, you might want to double check that you removed every inch of snow from your car.
Unless you work for a plowing company, snow is great twice a year. On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Otherwise it's a hassle.
If you live or will be driving in Wisconsin, part of that hassle could cost you.
I'm going to be honest here, if I lived in Wisconsin, I would probably owe the government some money on this one.
According to trucking.org, in Wisconsin,
if snow and/or ice were to fall from the vehicle and create a hazard, it could be cited under s. 348.10(2). More specifically, the statute reads: (2) No person shall operate a vehicle on a highway unless such vehicle is so constructed and loaded as to prevent its contents from dropping, sifting, leaking or otherwise escaping therefrom."
Basically, if snow falls off of your car and causes an issue, it will cost you. The fine isn't insane, but I'm sure you'd rather spend $181 on Christmas presents that flying snow fines.
