MILFORD - A new law goes into effect Wednesday that requires drivers in Connecticut to clear their vehicles of ice and snow before hitting the roads.

The so-called "ice missle" law aims to prevent chunks of ice and snow from flying off of cars and potentially hitting other vehicles.

State Representative and House Minority Leader Larry Cafero was the driver behind the law after his wife's windshield was smashed by flying ice 10 years ago.

Some drivers are worried that frequent snowfall in the area will make it a tough law to follow. Others say they welcome the law because driving behind a snow or ice-covered car can be terrifying.
