State police are cracking down on drivers who aren't clearing the snow and ice off their vehicles before they hit the road.  It's a requirement of Connecticut's new 'ice missile' law.

 

Thanks to a snowy winter, so far, police have issued at least 230 tickets to people driving snow covered vehicles.  At $120 per ticket, that's about $28,000 in fines collected since January 1 when the law took effect.

 

Also, if snow or flying ice causes injury or property damage to others on the road, the fines can be as much as $1,250.
