Loose gravel roads can be a nightmare for drivers
“For the first time, Lancaster County is chip sealing some roads. That process involves laying down tar, and then putting quartzite down to create a seal over the asphalt.
But the chip sealing has left several drivers with chips in their windshield.
“You can just hear and feel it flying,” said Travis Isaacs, who lives on 148th St.
Isaacs drives down 148th St. every day. But while the county is chip sealing, he says he’ll be finding an alternate route to drop off his kids in Waverly.
“I made two trips to Waverly, and ended up with three rock chips in my windshield,” Isaacs said. “I talked to my sister, she has one. And my friend has one. There’s a whole Facebook group of people adding their names, saying ‘I have one today.'””

It’s a frustrating experience when you’re driving down these roads and another vehicle flings small rocks in your direction. Some of these rocks manage to make it to your windshield creating a chip that could ultimately spread as a crack. Unless you’re driving extremely slow and allowing for a great distance between vehicles (ticking off drivers following you), these types of damages are seemingly unavoidable.
