This is the time of the year where we often end up with people unintentionally wandering out onto ice that isn't yet safe enough to handle the weight of people, let alone the vehicles they try and drive out there.

You should always double and triple check the thickness of the ice you're going out on. Make sure that the thickness is consistent and not just thick in one area.

Keep in mind that these are minimum requirements and that bringing your vehicle on the ice is something you should think long and hard about. And when driving on ice, it's best to keep your window down do that in the event of a fall-through, you can get out of the vehicle before it sinks to the bottom and fills with water.

With that said, check out this fail video of people falling through (intentionally and otherwise) ice that wasn't quite thick enough!
