When you think of ice and the hazards of driving at this time of year it is natural to think of spinning out on dangerously icy roads, but there is also a hazard when the ice is not cleaned off of your vehicle before your road trip begins. When ice (and even snow) is not cleaned off a vehicle it poses the danger of flying off when the vehicle is in motion and can become a projectile headed for other vehicles out on the road. This can be especially dangerous when the ice flies and shatters the windshield of another vehicle while it is also in motion on busy roads, which could lead to injury from glass/ice coming through the windshield or losing control of the vehicle and crashing. Next time you travel, take care to remove ALL ice and snow from the entire vehicle, including the roof, hood, trunk, and truck bed, not just the windshield and windows.
