Mounties are reminding Richmond drivers to clear the snow off their vehicles before heading out on the roads.

The Richmond detachment posted a photo to Twitter Monday showing a driver who received a $109 ticket for failing to do so. The dark sedan was covered in several centimetres of snow, with only a tiny portion of the back window cleared.

“For safety’s sake, please take a few moments and clear all of your windows of snow,” the tweet read.


Delta Police joined in on the call, adding a $10 brush to clean the snow off your car is much cheaper than a fine.

Richmond received a dump of fluffy snow on Sunday, and a snowfall warning remains in effect for the additional 10 to 15 centimetres expected Monday afternoon.

The City of Richmond has plows out on the major routes, although residents were still complaining about the icy conditions and lack of consideration from fellow drivers on social media.
