Rule 229 of the Highway Code states:
You MUST be able to see, so clear all snow and ice from all your windows
You MUST ensure that lights are clean and number plates are clearly visible and legible
Make sure the mirrors are clear and the windows are demisted thoroughly
Remove all snow that might fall off into the path of other road users
Check your planned route is clear of delays and that no further snowfalls or severe weather are predicted.
