DENVER -- How many times have you passed a driver who hasn't scraped the snow and ice off their windshield?

In Colorado, there is a state statute that requires drivers to have an "unobstructed view."

Colorado State Patrol trooper John Lewis told Denver7 that law means you must have a clear windshield.

"Two little eyeholes scraped off is not sufficient, you must have a clean windshield," Lewis said.

The fine for having an obstructed view is $46.

"It's a primary offense," Lewis said.

That means you can be pulled over for having snow and ice on your windshield.
