A motorist has been reported for driving while their vehicle's windscreen was completely frozen over.

The driver was stopped by one of Surrey Police's Casualty Reduction Officers (CRO) during a morning shift.

According to the police, who highlighted the offence on their official Twitter account, the lady who was driving the vehicle in such condition, couldn't understand why she was reported for the offence.

A spokesperson for Surrey Roads Policing Unit, said: "Would you believe it. One of our Casualty Reduction Officers (CRO) stopped the driver of this car this morning.

"She didn't understand why she was reported for an offence."

Driving with a frozen windscreen is incredibly dangerous and the lack of visibility could cause you to crash and is considered illegal here in the UK. If found guilty of the offence, you could find yourself fined and issued penalty points on your licence.

Under Regulation 30 of the Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986, windscreens need to be clear and not obstruct the driver’s view of the road.

Not keeping your windows clear could result in a £60 penalty fine and three points on your driving licence.
