    No, I really wouldn't. What on earth was the driver thinking? :eek:

    That's ridiculous, not to mention dangerous. How long does it take to clear a windscreen of snow? No one is in that much of a hurry. Stupid.

    Many years ago, when I had my first car (a 1967 mini, then over 10 years old), and we still had snowy winters, I had to return home after thick snow & freezing temperatures. My windscreen wipers failed, and I tried to clear the windscreen by scraping snow off with my right hand whilst driving ( I feared I'd never start again if I stopped). The clear space was tiny.

    Luckily the roads were empty, and I made the 80+ miles home. Wouldn't recommend it, or do it today!

    Stupid and irresponsible. Putting his own life and the lives of others at risk.

    That's mad. And dangerous.

    I remember my brother setting off after clearing his window of snow. When he braked at the traffic lights however, the blanket of snow on the top of the car came sliding down over the window and they couldn't see a thing. Fortunately it was a quiet road, and they were able to get it off without holding up the traffic for too long.

    My Mam tells a story about the day she went into labour with me. She and my dad had been visiting her mother, about 10 miles away when they realised they'd best get home aharpish. It was snowing and the windscreen wipers were broken so my dad had to keep leaning round through the window the wipe the snow clear.

    Needless to say, I was worth it. ;)

    And bad.
    I was stupid enough for this to happen to me. Once. Never again. For all the time it takes to clear the roof too . . .
