With all the snow we've gotten, there's no doubt you've probably seen cars and trucks flinging ice and snow on the highway.

More and more people have said their cars are taking the brunt of the damage.

Drivers said it's time for people to do the right thing and clean their cars as we prepare for more snow.

"Just this morning, I was driving on the highway and a few cars in front of me, just some ice flew off," driver Chris Rolfsen said.

It's Russian roulette on the road.

"You think I warmed it up. I'm good. I defrosted everything. No. You need to clear all the ice off your car," driver Dariyel Maull said.

Drivers are getting slammed with ice and snow from nearby cars and trucks smashing their windshields and shattering their nerves.

WLWT obtained video from the Norwood Lateral showing the ice fly off a semi-truck.

Then, there's more on I-75.

Dylan Moermond, 20, got iced on Wednesday.

"It was really scary. It's kind of sad, too, because today's my birthday, so, pretty bad birthday present," Moermond said.

He's had his car just three months.

"It hit and when it hit, it dented this in right here, took off the paint right there and then, come over here, you can see the mirror right here got all cracked in and everything," he said.

Drivers admit that digging out is tough in the cold.

But in Ohio, police said it's illegal to not clear snow and ice from your windows, headlights and taillights, and license plate.
