Rindge PD Reminds Us How Important It Is To Clear Snow and Ice Off Before Driving
On the highway I see snow and ice flying off vehicles all the time. Thankfully the driver and passenger were not injured during this incident on Route 202 but as you can see the damage to their Jeep Wrangler is pretty significant.
According to WMUR, this policy received the name "Jessica's Law" after a young girl named Jessica Smith was killed in Peterborough after a nine-foot piece of ice flew off a tractor-trailer and hit her car in 1996.
NH State Police pull over dozens of people each winter for not cleaning off their cars. Drivers are fined between $250 to $500 for the first offense and could lose their license after subsequent offenses.
