Pennsylvania politician wants to punish motorists who drive snow-covered vehicles.

State Senator Lisa Boscola wants to give police the power to punish people who drive cars and trucks covered in snow and ice. Her legislation is prompted by the 2005 death of a Northampton County woman, killed when ice flew off a truck and pierced her car's windshield. Boscola's bill requires drivers make reasonable efforts to remove ice and snow from vehicles, including the roof. Violators would face a fine between $25 and $75.
