Drivers to be fined for ice and snow on vehicles

Posted by Genie Wood on Fri, May 07, 2010 @ 03:07 AM

The state of Connecticut recently adopted a measure that would fine drivers who did not remove snow and ice from their vehicles prior to driving on the roadway. Ice and snow from moving vehicles becomes a hazard when it flies off and can cause damage to a person or vehicle upon impact.

Fines would start at $75 for failing to remove snow or ice from the vehicle and go up to $1,250 if snow or ice flies off a commercial truck causing injury or damage. Some trucking associations oppose the bill, saying it is impractical and even impossible to clear the ice and snow off a large semi tractor-trailer, and that even roof heating systems are not wholly successful.

Finances are always a concern for commercial trucking companies. If you need to free up your cash flow, contact TBS Truck Factoring, LLC, today by calling 800-207-7661.
