    Starting October 2010, all vehicles on New Jersey roads are required to make “reasonable” efforts to clean off ice and snow from their cars and trucks.  Those failing to do so will be fined between $25-$75 per violation.

    Drivers will not be fined more than once per day
    Drivers that have cleaned their vehicle of snow before heading out will not be fined for snow that accumulates while driving
    Violations result in $25-$75 fines, but no points will be added to the license
    In addition to the above, a new state law was also passed:

    This is the new state law:

    NJSA 39:4-77.1
    39:4-77.1.  Snow, ice dislodged from moving vehicle causing injury, property damage; penalties

     1.  When snow or ice is dislodged from a moving vehicle and strikes another vehicle or pedestrian causing injury or property damage, the following penalties shall apply:

     The operator of a non-commercial motor vehicle shall be subject to a fine of not less than $200 or more than $1,000 for each offense.

     The operator, owner, lessee, bailee or any one of the aforesaid of a commercial motor vehicle shall be subject to a fine of not less than $500 or more than $1,500 for each offense.

     No motor vehicle points or automobile insurance eligibility points pursuant to section 26 of P.L.1990, c.8 (C.17:33B-14) shall be assessed for this offense.
