With Drumheller suffering from Mother Nature's latest wrath, you'll need to be remember a few things to avoid getting a ticket.
Most drivers know enough to clear snow off all their windows, but many might forget to brush off an important little rectangle on the back of their car.
"If you operate a motor vehicle without your license plate properly displayed, it is a $155 ticket," explained Drumheller RCMP Staff Sergeant Kevin Charles. "It comes down to safety. In any snowstorm, it's important to take that minute, take your snow brush and walk around your vehicle. Clean off your headlights, clean off your brakes lights and, clean off your license plate. Of course, clean off your windows as well."
As for the myth that you can drive your vehicle as long as you can see out of the front windshield, Charles said that's not quite the rule.
"If you drive a motor vehicle when it's unsafe to do so, because of obscured view, that's a $155 ticket as well. So again, you want to make sure you've cleaned off all your windows."
With the snow expected to continue, Charles has a big tip for all drivers in Alberta:
"Slow down. Make sure you slow down and give yourself lots of time. In weather like this, if you don't have to go anywhere, if you can reschedule your trip, then do so. Don't hit the road if you don't have to."
The latest winter storm has already dropped more than 20 centimetres of snow on southern Alberta and more is forecast for Thursday night and over the weekend.
