Clearing off your car is no fun, but this driver took it to the extreme





Nobody likes clearing off their car after a storm, especially when doing so feels more like imitating an ice sculpture artist than getting ready for work.

But one driver took things to the extreme this morning, traveling down the Mass. Pike with nearly the entire windshield covered in snow and only a small square scraped off for visibility.

State Police, understandably, were not impressed.

The agency tweeted a photo of the vehicle on Wednesday, asking drivers not to be “that guy.”

This wasn’t even the first time State Police had to tweet about snow-covered cars Wednesday. Earlier in the day, police stopped a pickup truck covered in huge mounds of snow and ice.

Every year it seems, this appeal goes out to drivers, and for good reason. In 2015, a trooper’s car windshield was cracked by flying ice and snow in Worcester. The driver of the car that caused the damage was given a $200 citation.

Today’s incident isn’t even the most egregious in recent memory. Also in 2015, Wellesley Police stopped a driver that somehow managed to make it onto the roadway with just a tiny area cleared on the driver’s side windshield.

“That is very … special,” Burlington Police officials said in a tweet to Wellesley officers.
