(a)   No person shall drive a vehicle when it is so loaded as to obstruct the view of the driver to the front or sides of the vehicle, or so as to interfere with the driver’s control over the driving mechanism of the vehicle.
   (b)   No person shall drive a motor vehicle without having an unobstructed view to the rear of their vehicle by direct view or by mirror. Windshields in front of a driver shall be of a clear, transparent substance, free from cloudiness, moisture or vapor, and kept clear of snow, ice, rain, dirt or any dangling ornament or other suspended object, except as authorized by law, which in any way obstructs the vision of the driver of the vehicle.
   (c)   No person shall drive any vehicle upon a highway with any sign, poster or other nontransparent material upon the front windshield, side wings, side or rear windows of such motor vehicle other than a certificate or other paper required to be so displayed by law. Every windshield on a motor vehicle shall be equipped with a device for cleaning rain, snow or other moisture and dirt from the windshield, which device shall be so constructed as to be controlled or operated by the driver of the vehicle and from within the vehicle, and such windshield wiper shall be maintained in good working order.
   (d)   No motor vehicle licensed as such, and manufactured after January 1, 1956, shall be operated on the highways unless it is equipped with a windshield washer maintained in operable condition at all times and capable of cleaning the windshield in such a fashion as to leave the driver with a clear view of the highway or any intersecting highway.
