The ice and sleet not only covered roads, powerlines and trees, it also coated vehicles.
The Illinois State Police is reminding motorists they must remove ice and snow buildup on their vehicles before traveling. Police continue to receive reports of damage done to vehicles on the roads and interstates from ice falling off other vehicles.
It is illegal to drive any vehicle on the road if it "is in such unsafe condition as to endanger any person or property," according to Illinois law.
Drivers who drive a vehicle with ice buildup on it that falls off and damages another vehicle may be cited and may also be civilly liable for damage caused by the buildup falling off and hitting other vehicles.
