AN 80-YEAR-OLD man was charged in Canada this week, after driving a car that was almost completely covered in snow with only a small portion of the driver’s side windshield cleared, police said.

Ontario Provincial Police said yesterday the man received a $110 ticket (€71) after an officer spotted a car resembling a pile of snow on the road in Brussels, Ontario on Tuesday.

The man, whose name was not released, was charged with having an obstructed view.

According to police spokesman James Stanley, the man said he was too old and weak to brush it off. The officer cleared the snow from the man’s car and let him on his way.

He was going for a short drive in town. I understand his excuse was he was too old, too weak to brush off the snow.

Police tweeted a picture of the car, adding:

Can’t make this stuff up. Driver charged today in Brussels actually driving like this.
