Having a dirty or snow-covered license plate could cost you a handful of cash. 
 
After storms, vehicles may have their plates covered with snow, ice and mud. Failing to brush them off them could result in a $155 fine from local enforcement.

"Obviously, when you're in the middle of a snow storm it's a bit difficult. But please make sure that before you get in to drive you make sure that your licence plate isn't covered," said Fort Saskatchewan Constable Janice Schoepp.
 
If your license plate is not visible or the view is obscured from anything like a hitch, cover or tint a larger fine may occur. 
 
"We all need to be reasonable about this. At the beginning of the day or whenever you're checking your vehicle, just make sure your licence is cleared off," added Schoepp.
 
Another snow storm is expected in the next 48 hours.
