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!’

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
