Skeptical in the Snow
The bill's heart is in the right place. It was prompted by the death of a Northampton County woman several years ago. Ice flew off a truck. It slammed into the windshield, and the driver was killed.
Should every car and truck, especially the big rigs, be cleared of snow and ice before they hit the road? Absolutely? Is it practical to do so? No. Do police have the time to pull over every car and truck with an accumulation of snow? Negative.
A similar bill made it through the state senate last year. It died in the house.
I wouldn't be surprised if this one met a similar fate, even though it's a great idea.
