Dude, clean off your car.

A friendly reminder that YES, it's illegal in the state of Michigan not to clear the snow off of your car before you get on the road.

Michigan is one of 12 states where this is actually a law. You can be cited for distracted driving; first offense is $100, second is $200. Luckily, no points off your license.

If it reduces your visibility or somebody else's visibility, you can be ticketed. If it flies off your car and hits somebody else's car, you can be ticketed.

So, the short answer is YES. You CAN get a ticket for not clearing snow of your car. Just do it before you leave. It's simple.
