Be Sure to Clear the Ice

Before hitting the roadways, police are urging drivers to make sure they clear all the ice from their vehicles.
Now that the ice storm is over, many cars are left with a layer of ice on them. While it may be easy for drivers to just scrape off enough ice to see out the windshield, Vermont State Police want to remind everyone that you need to scrape all the ice off your car.

 Police say there have been several incidents of ice chunks flying off of cars on the interstate. In one case, a flying chunk of ice smashed through the windshield of another car. Luckily nobody was hurt.

 Police say there is a fine if ice flies off your car and hits another car or person. They compare it to an unsecured heavy load falling off your car while you’re driving.
