Washer fluid blocks side camera

    Every time I use the windshield washers, (which this time of year is every drive longer than a few miles) the washer fluid forms a river that runs directly over the side camera. And it triggers an autopilot error. And since the washer fluid is full of road-salt, even after the river dries up the salt that the river deposits continues to block the camera for the duration of the drive.

    Is this normal? Or am I just lucky? And does anyone have any tips on how to encourage the washer fluid to flow someplace other than directly on top of the camera?
