Concern about chunks of frozen precipitation falling off moving vehicles has led a New York state lawmaker to pursue legislation intended to improve safety on roadways. Assemblyman Mike Spano, D-Yonkers, has offered a bill that would force truckers and other drivers to remove ice, snow, sleet and hail from their vehicles before taking to the state’s roadways.

There is absolutely no way in hell I am going to climb up on top of a trailer to remove ice. Simply not happening. That is a fall that could break your neck and kill you.

Here is a thought, stay the hell away from the rear of trucks who have been in icy conditions. I guess that would be too simple though.
