A: Pennsylvania requires all drivers to clear their vehicles of snow and ice or face hefty fines (up to $1,000) if that snow and ice falls off their car and causes injury to a pedestrian or other motorist.

Pennsylvania also requires that drivers light their headlamps whenever they have their windshield wipers on (even if they are only on intermittently) or if visibility is at all diminished by conditions including dusk, snow, rain or fog.
