WE'VE ALL gone by accident scenes. Crunched cars, scarred trees, glass and other debris littering the road. Unfortunately, some of us live near sites where accidents frequently happen. Jill Balthis is one such person. "Who is responsible for cleaning up after accidents?" she asked. According to JoAnn Maxfield, customer service representative for the Howard County Department of Public Works, the Police Department has arrangements with towing companies. After the tow truck loads up the damaged vehicle, the driver will sweep debris or glass to the side of the road and remove any large car parts.
