Imagine you're driving on the highway, and pieces of ice or piles of snow come flying at your windshield from another car or truck.  

That's what Connecticut's new "ice missile law is trying to prevent.  The legislation went into effect at the start of 2014.  

Now drivers of cars or trucks can be fined 75 dollars for traveling with mounds of snow on their vehicles.   Also, if snow or flying ice causes injury or property damage to others, the fines can be as much as $1200.

With more snow sure to come this season, some residents are concerned about the fines.  

State Representative Larry Cafero, a Republican from Norwalk, pushed for the legislation after his wife's car was hit by an "ice missile."
