"I was doing maybe less than 40 km/h," said Kayode. "The next thing I just saw the lights, and I was like, 'What's going on?'"

Kayode pulled over and waited for the officer to come to his window.

"He knocked on my door and then asked me, 'Do you know why I stopped you?' I was like, no!"

The officer told him he was being given a ticket because his licence plate was covered with snow.

Kayode said he was speechless. After he was handed the ticket, he got out took pictures of what the back of his vehicle looked, while the officer was still in his vehicle behind him.

He eventually posted about it on Instagram and said his friends couldn't believe what had happened.

'I'm going to fight it'

"I was shocked. I was actually surprised that he gave me a ticket," Kayode said. "I didn't know I could be stopped for that in that condition. It was -46 yesterday, everywhere was cold, everyone had the same thing. It's just crazy"

Blizzard expected to hammer eastern Newfoundland with up to 70 cm of snow

  Blizzard expected to hammer eastern Newfoundland with up to 70 cm of snow ST. JOHN'S, N.L. — Residents of eastern Newfoundland are bracing for a blizzard on Friday. Blizzard warnings have been issued for much of the region, where up to 70 centimetres of snow is expected to fall on the northeastern edge of the Avalon Peninsula. The forecast says blowing snow will reduce visibility to zero in the area, as well as in Clarenville and the Bonavista Peninsula, where up to 50 centimetres of snow is possible. Northerly wind gusts are expected to peak at 140 kilometres per hour along exposed areas of the coast. Storm surge warnings have also been issued.

That may be the case, but the Traffic Safety Act is clear. Under all weather conditions, a clear plate is the driver's responsibility.

"Most officers will give people some time after a snowfall to make sure they've had a chance to clear their vehicles," said Cheryl Voordenhout, a spokesperson with the Edmonton Police Service.

"As drivers, we all have a responsibility to keep our lights, and our windows, and our plates clear of snow to help keep us all safe on the roads and to allow law enforcement to do their job."

But Kayode said despite the frost and snow the two letters on his plate were still visible.

"I would expect him to warn me, and say, 'Could you go clean your plate,' which I would do."

Instead, Kayode has a $155 ticket he said he has no intention of paying.

"I'm going to fight it, I'm going to plead not guilty," he said. "It's ridiculous. Apart from that [the licence plate] was not even fully covered, even though he said it was covered, you could still see. It's just two letters, A, Y."

Kayode said he's scheduled to see a justice of the peace on March 12.
