CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) – Chesterfield police say an officer should have removed the snow from his cruiser’s back window before getting on the road.

Holly Cohn posted a photo to the CBS 6 Facebook page Wednesday afternoon showing a Chesterfield police cruiser with snow covering its roof and back window.

“Just curious why the police don’t have to abide by the same laws that we pay them to enforce?#doublestandards,” Cohn wrote.

Facebook friend Kristina Parker said that the picture was snapped around 7:05 a.m. Wednesday at the traffic light at Hull and the Bailey Bridge.

Chesterfield police released the following statement after CBS 6 forwarded the department the photo:

“The snow should have been removed from the vehicle. We are addressing this issue with the officer involved. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.”
