DVSA issues urgent frost warning – Drivers 'must be able to see' or risk heavy fines


The RAC said: “If you’re running late on a winter morning, you might think it’s a good idea to save some time by only clearing just enough ice off your windscreen so you can see out of it — but think again.

This practice is called ‘portholing’ and while it might seem like a good way to bag some extra time in the morning it could also see you bag a £60 fine and three points on your licence.

They added: “Failure to do so means you wouldn’t have a full view of the road and traffic ahead, which could see a police officer slap you with a £60 fine for your car being in a ‘dangerous condition’.”

Rule 229 of the Highway Code warns drivers must be able to see at all times in adverse weather conditions.
