KING COUNTY, Wash. -- We've all been there. You're late for work and you step outside only to find your car encased in ice.
You're faced with waiting for your car to warm up and clear it - or grab the ice scraper and get to work.
King County sheriff's deputies shared a photo of exactly what not to do: a windshield with only a small circle of ice cleared in front of the driver's line of sight.
"Ummm...no," deputies wrote in a Facebook post. "Not safe, terrible idea, worst thing ever, wouldn't be prudent and so on."
Deputies instead crowdsourced some ideas on how to more efficiently clear your windshield:
"Whatever you do, drivers are obligated to clear their windshield of anything that may obscure their view," deputies said.
