  1. Hi, All. I'm not here that much (too busy; so forgive me if I don't reply to your responses to my response) and I happen to see this thread. This is a subject dear to my heart because I have seen so much of it around me. I have seen so many people become outraged by lenient laws yet they turn away from victims of domestic violence who ask for help. All I have to say is regardless of the laws and demographics in any state or country, please, please try to help someone in such a situation. The strictest laws are useless unless someone calls the police, helps the victim find a safe place, calls a "safe" relative for that person, loans/gives money to help the person get out, whatever fits the situation, etc. I've had to call the parents (which was very awkward for me) of someone in that situation because no one else would dare to do so.
  2. There are not signs on most businesses that you are parking at your own risk. Maybe for general parking lots, but not at most places of business. Ice on a roof is the responsibility of the owner. The owner is responsible for certain safety. Homeowners are responsible for ice on their roof. In other words, owners of private property are responsible for the safety of the property. If you fall on a city sidewalk due to ice, the city is not liable. It is their sidewalk, but you have no recourse to someone's insurance. This happened to a friend of mine. Her insurance picked up her bills for her back surgery. If you fall on the ice on someone's driveway, then the owner of the property is liable, however. So who is responsible for the general safety on the roads? The government? Then they should pull over every single car with ice on the roof. But what about those who text and drive? Who talk and drive? Who drink and drive? Who search around for something on the floor and drive? Who speed and drive? What about those tied up mattresses on top of cars? (I saw a driver of a tractor trailer talking on a cell phone two days ago.) There are so many other things on the road that are "unsafe." These people aren't contributing to general safety. Everything we do has a risk. And we can't control who cleans the roof of their cars. Nor can we control those who text and drive. (I don't have time to come back here and read and reply, so I will have to sign off for now.)
  3. I clean the roof off the best I can. However, there isn't a whole lot you can do with a stuck layer of ice on top of the roof in below freezing weather. If I see it is melting when I am out (such as at the grocery store), I try to sweep it off the best I can. However, I don't carry a stepstool in the car. I can also tell you that damage from falling ice from a roof of a building onto a car will not be paid by the insurance company of the building or the building's owner. It happens over and over up here. These are cars parked in correct parking spots by buildings.
  4. Happy Easter Season to you and the family!
