    Default Snow makes for an early start

    Being a dutifull hubby i got up at 5 am so as to take my wife and her friend to work [rather than letting her take her corsa],what is it with people and snow why the total in-ability to clear the car windows of snow ? it is not as if it takes long to do and it makes driving a great deal safer,this is in addition to those that still feel that they should follow you as if they are attached to your car with an umbilical cord.
    rant over have nice day and drive safe guys

    It was on the M8 the Honda. I mean for all it takes there is no excuse not to clean the windows.

    You don't have to clear all windows just windscreen and fronts. Rears it does not matter.

    Remember wing mirrors and all lights also must be done.

    Your car should also be clear enough that no snow can fall off on the road.

    Go against any of those things and you can get three points. A nice copper pulled me and gave me a leaflet the other day!

    Common sense should prevail,while clearing the front and the sides it does not take a few mins more to clear the rear window,I just use a soft head broom to brush it all of.

    The idiots are out again to day the roads are bad here in Essex this morning very slippery but still cars following up against the rear bumper.
