Rhinelander Police Sergeant encourages people to follow law and clear car of snow
RHINELANDER - Wisconsin law states the windshield, side, and rear windows of a motor vehicle shall be kept reasonably clean at all times.

Sergeant Kurt Helke of Rhinelander PD said this is something he doesn't enforce aggressively, but he will pull someone over if he sees an imminent safety hazard.
"At a minimum," said Helke. "That's a warning and they're gonna be sitting there until they take the time to let their car defrost and clear their windows so they can see.

Make sure to also clear lights and your rear license plate. 

Helke recommends clearing all snow off your vehicle to just be a good neighbor.

"We all have to get through this long winter and deal with the snow so we should all accommodate best we can and be respectable of other people on the road," said Helke. "Do your due diligence to take care of your vehicle and drive safely."

Also, be sure to look into winter parking restrictions where you live, or else you may face a ticket and a lot of time shoveling.
