Problems with flying ice: police

(Newswatch Group/File)

TINCAP – Provincial police are asking motorists to take the extra time to clear snow and ice off their vehicles after complaints of flying ice.

Leeds County O.P.P. say they have received complaints of “airborne slabs of ice” crashing on vehicles approaching and following the offending drivers.

Fortunately, there have been no injuries, but there has been damage of vehicles and police are worried something worse could happen.

“Owning a vehicle comes with responsibility, leaving ice on your vehicle because it takes too long or inconveniences you may result in a fine, or worse, someone’s life,” Detachment Commander Jeff Smith said.

Police also want you to be aware that snow on the roof can temporarily blind other drivers as it blows off your car or truck.
