80-year-old man charged for driving car described as “pile of snow on road”

We’ve all done it. You’re in a rush so you wipe just enough snow off the windshield to provide a portal for navigation while the defroster clears off the rest. But an 80-year-old Ontario man took it to the extreme and as a result was charged for driving an unsafe car almost completely covered with snow.

The car had only a portion of the driver’s side windshield cleared for vision. Brussels police pointed out the car was quite easy to spot saying it “resembled a pile of snow in the road”.

Police spokesman James Stanley said the man said he was too old and weak to brush it off. The officer cleared the snow from the man’s car and let him on his way.
