It may seem obvious, but Nova Scotia RCMP say not all drivers are heeding their advice to clean the snow off cars before hitting the road.

Police stopped a car near Liverpool on Wednesday that was pretty much a textbook case of an obstructed view.

The officers were so impressed, they took pictures and tweeted it out.

The driver was fined $176 for driving with an obstruction on the windshield.
