Snow capped cars

If you're going to buy and drive a tall vehicle — SUV or mini-van — can you also invest in a small step stool and a shop broom?

Then, clean the snow off the top of the tall thingy before you start out in the morning.

Riding down my street this morning, a minivan in the other lane hit a bump and a sheet of snow from the roof slid down and covered the windshield — with the minivan pointed right at me. The driver stopped short, sending the rest of the snow from the roof right into my path.

There's no law in Massachusetts requiring owners to clear their vehicles, but do we really need a law to use their cars and trucks in a thoughtful manner?
