A motorist has been charged with dangerous driving by officers from Tayside Police (Police Scotland) after being stopped earlier this morning (11th Feb).
The Red Peugeot was covered entirely in snow, apart from a tiny ‘peep hole’ on the driver’s side of the windscreen, when it was stopped by Roads Policing officers.
Rather than clearing all of the snow off of the vehicle before setting off, the driver instead decided to risk their chances by driving with a severely restricted view.
A spokesperson for Tayside Police tweeted:
‘This car was stopped by our Roads Policing Unit shortly before 10 am at Kinnoull Road, Dunsinane industrial estate in Dundee.
‘The driver has been charged with dangerous driving. We know it’s inconvenient having to clear your car before you drive, but it MUST be done’.
One Twitter user commented: ‘It’s unbelievable how many cars are driving around like this!’
