Make sure you clear your car of ice before driving

“One Bedford County man is making a plea for drivers to brush the snow and ice off their cars.

It may be an inconvenience when you’re in a rush, but taking the time to do so will help others.

As Scott Elvira headed to work Monday morning, his windshield got smashed by ice coming off another car.

‘I left early so I could drive slower because I wasn’t sure how the roads were going to be,’ Elvira said.

Only 5 minutes away from work, he saw a white SUV was coming in the opposite direction, which is when he noticed the ice sliding.

‘It was going to hit the car,’ Elvira said. ‘I was like ohhh and then boom!'”

It happens all the time. An innocent driver has the misfortune of sustaining vehicle damage (or worse) because another driver neglected to remove ice build up from their vehicle. State laws vary as far as responsibility for clearing one’s car of debris, however, common courtesy and sense should always prevail.

Travelling at high speeds, a sheet of ice can turn into a deadly weapon. Yes, it may be inconvenient to spend time removing ice, but it is the right thing to do!
