As mother nature continues to grace us with her presence, Saanich Police took to social media with a cheeky post reminding all motorists to clear their windows properly in the morning.
Saanich Police posted on their Facebook with a photo, “unless you’re a tank driver actively serving our military this might not be the best idea! Please make sure you’re taking enough time to scrape your windows in the morning.”

The most important function of your windshield is to allow you to navigate safely.
Remember, that operating a vehicle with snow or frost covered windshield is not only dangerous but against the law.
During the winter months, make sure you have a snow brush and ice scraper in your vehicle.
Motorists in a hurry often only clear the windshield; please take the extra time to clear all windows of your vehicle.
It is an offence to drive with an obstructed view.
Having no clear view to the front, sides or rear of your vehicle may result in a fine.
