Why you should never drive with a snow-covered windshield

The Massachusetts State Police has a message for drivers as they headed back onto the roads after a major snowstorm: "Don't be this guy."

"This guy" is the driver that Trooper Paul Copponi pulled over on the Massachusetts Turnpike in March 2017. The driver had only removed a small amount of snow from his windshield, leaving the entire passenger side and roof covered in snow.

Soooo..... this just happened. Trooper Paul Copponi just stopped this vehicle on the Massachusetts Turnpike in Weston....

The Massachusetts State Police issued a strong warning on its Facebook page regarding the incident: "How little regard do you have to have for the lives and safety of your fellow citizens, not to mention your own life and safety, to do this? Rest assured, we are aggressively looking for anyone who is driving around like this today. Don't be this guy."
