Dear Editor:

Today was Invermeres first snowfall during morning traffic. As I drove to town, I couldnt help to notice how many drivers were compromising their view from their snow-covered windshields. For every two vehicles I saw with windshields completely cleared of snow, the third vehicle showed the classic peek-a-boo opening, in which the driver turned on the wipers to remove the snow directly in front of his / her viewing area.

Its time to re-acquaint ourselves with our window scrapers / brushes, and take the time to remove all snow / ice from our vehicles windows. Having an unobstructed windshield as well as the other windows, allows a driver to see all potential hazards including children, domestic pets, and of course, wildlife.

We know we cant change the weather, but we can change how we drive in it.
