Woman ticketed for driving snow-covered car in south end Halifax

HALIFAX — A 37-year-old woman has been ticketed after driving what police have described as a "moving snowbank."

Halifax police Const. Diane Woodworth says the woman was stopped on Barrington Street on Wednesday because her car was not properly cleared of snow.

A photo of the four-door black sedan shows only a small section of the windshield cleared of snow on the driver's side, and several inches of snow on its roof.

Woodworth says the woman told officers that she was on her way to a car wash to melt the snow.

She was issued a $180 ticket for driving a motor vehicle with an obstruction on its windshield.

Woodworth says police posted a photo of the snow-covered car on its Facebook page as a deterrent and it's been shared more than 500 times.
