A simple solution for the complaint heard constantly throughout the storms and for at least the following week about the many vehicles (both cars and trucks) whose drivers had not completely removed the snow from their vehicle roof, creating hazards for other drivers when it blew or fell off: Make it a LAW requiring complete snow removal from the vehicle roof, or face a heavy (several hundred $$$) fine. A relative in NJ told me how this was made a state law, and it's been successful in ensuring drivers clear their cars/trucks. Add complete removal of snow from windshield and back window: it was amazing to see many vehicles driving with limited visibility in what were already dangerous conditions, because the drivers hadn't taken the few minutes to fully clear their windshield and back window!
