Northumberland OPP have charged a Tweed man after almost six feet of snow was left on top of a trailer.
Police were called on Thursday morning around 11 a.m. regarding a transport truck in Brighton hitting overhead wires because of the accumulation of snow.
The 51-year-old man was charged under the Highway Traffic Act with an over-height vehicle.
Police want to remind motorists to clear the snow off their vehicles prior to travel.
It is not an offence to drive with an accumulation of snow on the roof of your vehicle but if snow or ice flies off and strikes a pedestrian or causes a collision you can be held civilly liable.
