Clear Off Your Cars!

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Where I live, the snow yesterday was over by 9 a.m. 

We got maybe two light-fluffy inches. It wasn’t that cold out. It wasn’t windy. 

But as I hit the road about an hour later, it didn’t take long to spot you, Mr. and Ms. I Can’t Be Bothered to Clear All the Snow Off My Car.

I have a few questions for you:

What were you thinking when you saw that your car had been snowed on? It’s not as if you didn’t notice the snow, you had to clear at least some of it away.

When you stopped clearing short of any known safety standard, how did you justify it to yourself? Did you think: “well, I feel kinda lazy this morning, and maybe the sun will melt it,” even though there was no sun?

Or did you have the same sense of responsibility as the driver of that 18-wheeler on 495 the other day who just kept right on going when a big chunk of ice flew off his roof and crashed through the windshield of a following car, nearly killing a four-year-old girl and her mother?

It’s too late in the winter for anyone to claim they didn’t realize there was an issue. 

You’re expected to know that a red light means stop, and driving around without visibility and/or carrying a potentially-deadly unsecured cargo is a no-no.

We’ll probably have a couple more storms before spring. 

Is it really impossible for us to get through at least one without random stupidity?
