Ottawa — was your vehicle hit by ice / snow following the freezing rain over weekend. We’re talking to police today - we’d like to hear from you too!

I just watched an Ottawa officer drive right by me on Fallowfield not 30 minutes ago, while a car with so much snow on its roof and hood could barely see out of his window tailgated me. And he did nothing. Guess it’s easier to tweet it then enforce it. Guess it’s up to us?

OPS and OPP should have a blitz on this. A life could be saved.

So, maybe instead of hiding with a radar gun, you coppers need to patrol the roads more.

Quick heads up, a load of ice came off the top of an @OCTranspoLive double decker bus couple of day ago, Laurier & bank (ish) as it wen around a corner. Huge smash as it hit the ground (middle of intersection, lucky no cars or people there)

The struggle is real! 2018 Denali. HWY416 S/B at Roger Stevens. #cleanyourcar pic.twitter.com/6cSERsRxBO
It looks like a brick hit it 😬

I’m sympathetic to those with wrecked windshields but what is the practical solution when you have an inch of ice on top of your minivan? I’ve got a garage so rarely happens to me but so many don’t.

I had to replace a widerblade yesterday due to that reason. Very dangerous situation.

When you are at speed on the highway and this is your view from INSIDE the car at 8:30 at night. (pic taken the next day) The police need to enforce this and pull every single idiot off the road and slap them with a hefty fine. Don't be a contributing factor in someone's death pic.twitter.com/EVPCOKnNMo
This ought to go without saying, but it appears as though a reminder is needed. Flying ice can literally be deadly and you can be charged if you don’t clean your vehicle!
This is extremely dangerous. A lot of accidents happen this way! #ottawa #caraccident
You could sit on any toad and hand tickets all day to enforce this.
Pleeeeease!!! I get so scared driving around cars that aren’t cleared off 😰😰😰😰😰
