Car insurance policies could also be invalidated if you have an accident while your windscreen is covered in frost.
The build-up of snow and ice could also cause your vehicle’s windscreen wipers to become frozen to your vehicle.
This means you would be unable to clear any hazards from your windscreen and motorists must apply some de-icer to unhinge the wipers before setting off.
Motorists are urged to remove all snow from their vehicle before they set off to avoid water damage caused by melting ice.
Snow which is stuck onto a vehicle will eventually melt and could cause ice-cold water to enter small cracks on your vehicle’s bodywork.
