    Drivers Dodge Ice Missiles on Connecticut Highways

    Drivers spent the morning on Wednesday keeping an eye on ice flying off cars ahead of them on Connecticut's highways.

    Police are warning drivers to clean snow and ice off their cars to avoid dangers like “ice missiles,” which can be dangerous as well as damaging. 

    Drivers who do not remove snow and ice could be fined, whether or not the ice or snow comes off the vehicle, according to Naugatuck Police. 

    A post from the Andover State Trooper's Office says fines start at $120 for ice and snow left on a car.

    State police also had a clever way to get the point across.

    Tyler Rook, of Victor Auto Body Works in Middletown, said last month that damage could range from around $1,500 to totaling the car.
