An unfortunate road issue got sticky for several Prince William drivers on Tuesday morning.
According to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), along Minnieville Road roadwork was being completed, and while a contract put a sealant on the road, it had not cured before the rain started up.
This resulted in a sticky, black tar-like substance coated the cars that drove along the roadway.
Dumfries Total Auto Parts and Paint Owner Rick Jones said in an interview to NBC 4 that wax and grease remover would help remove the substance from the cars.
“What this does is it melts the tar – the road tar – off your car, and it beats scraping, or buffing,” said Jones in the interview.
For those that were impacted, VDOT is directing individuals to their website or 1-800-FOR-ROAD, to have someone come out and clean their car.
