WETHERSFIELD, CT - Beginning December 31 commercial motor vehicles will be required to remove snow and ice from hoods, trunks and roofs or their operators will face fines ranging from $75 to $1,250.

Operators of commercial vehicles who simply do not remove the accumulated snow and ice can be fined $75, however, the law calls for stiffer penalties when there’s personal or property damage from the flying elements.

In those instances the operator can face a fine ranging from $500 to $1,250 each time it happens. “This is a law meant to protect citizens and motorists from these elements that can be very dangerous when coming off traveling trucks on our highways and streets,” said DMV Commissioner Melody A. Currey.

The fines carry the penalty of an infraction. Operators are exempt from the fines when the snow, sleet and freezing rain begins or continues while the vehicle is traveling. Parked vehicles are also exempt from the required removal of ice and snow.
