Twin Falls Sheriff’s Recall to Scratch Car Windows

The Twin Falls Sheriff’s Office has sent out its annual reminder to completely scratch your car windows for safety reasons and to ensure you won’t face a fine. We haven’t had a big morning frost yet, we’re just starting to see the coating. So get into the habit now.

I know we’ve all done it at one time or another. We wake up late on a freezing morning, it’s 20 degrees outside and the frost is thick on the windows. Maybe you lost your ice scraper or forgot to put it in your car after the season. Blow up your car’s radiator, praying that the ice will start to melt. Then you pull out a CD or a credit card or whatever has an edge and scratch a hole just big enough in the windshield frost to see. Even though we’ve all been there, it’s a big no-no. Mainly for security reasons. Frost affects your eyesight.

Without completely scraping the frost off your window, not only is it harder to see what’s going on around you, but you can also be fined. The Twin Falls Sheriff’s Office sent out another reminder, as they do every year, that if you get caught without scratching your windows, you could be fined $ 90.

That being said, almost every time I’ve seen someone get arrested for lack of scratching, officers tend to help scratch the windows and let them go with a warning. However, if I were you, and some mornings I definitely consider doing it, I wouldn’t take the risk.
