Two more people died over the weekend after their vehicle went through the ice in a channel on Lake Minnetonka. An infant died a few weeks ago in a vehicle that went through the ice. Officials' warnings do not seem to be preventing more ice accidents.
One thought is to post a snow fence on each side of a channel before the bridge in addition to warning signs. This way, a vehicle would have to be driven through a fence to reach the channel. Maybe this will stop people from driving in the channels and save lives. It's worth a try.
