A scary situation happened near the Town of Mayfield that highlights the dangers of leaving ice and snow build-up on your car.

The Fulton County Sheriff's Office posted a picture on Facebook that shows a car with it's windshield smashed in by a piece of ice from a vehicle that was travelling in front of it on State Highway 29.

Thankfully nobody was injured in the accident, but as you can see there was a lot of damage that could have been avoided just by grabbing a broom and cleaning the top of the vehicle.

Not only is the entire windshield smashed in, take a look at the dent in the roof!

A new New York State law mandates that everyone must clean all snow off your vehicles before hitting the road. Not just the windshield.
