An 80-year-old man has been charged after driving a car that was almost completely covered in snow with only a portion driver's side windshield cleared for vision.

Ontario Provincial Police said Wednesday the man received a $110 ticket after an officer spotted a car resembling a pile of snow on the road in Brussels, Ontario on Tuesday.

The man, whose name was not released, was charged with having an obstructed view.

Police spokesman James Stanley says the man said he was too old and weak to brush it off and that he was just going for a short drive. The officer cleared the snow from the man's car and let him on his way.
