    Loads of snow on the floor and a broken windscreen thanks to some To***r who couldn't be bothered to clean their car roof off., doing 40 the snow and ice fell onto the windscreen on the car in front the Pr**k used his WWipers to clean it on v fast sent the lot flying through the air ice hit my screen and put a 2 ft long crack in it. I have a MOT on Saturday:headbang: so the window men are coming Friday to replace it:oops:

    Are you seriously suggesting that the driver in front should NOT use his wipers to clear the snow/ice which didn't break his windscreen but probably obscured his vision?

    No what I am seriously suggesting is that He should have cleaned the snow off his roof before his journey began as is the law of the land, but hey we have very few motorised patrol vehicles who will challenge motorists any way these days. I can remember a time when you got a producer if a light bulb didn't work now there are that many cars with faults that they only get pulled on MOT day.I followed a car the other day with Christmas tree lighting for rear lights, once the indicators went on the whole of the back of the car flashed along with it. An earth fault but a fault non the less, when they stopped in their driveway and I politely told them what was happening I was asked what business it was of mine!.

    So just how many vehicles are involved here? You imply 3, yours being the third behind both the 'To***r' and the 'Pr**k'. Your next msg suggests that you were the second vehicle in which case I'm also impressed that you can tell how fast the wipers are going on a car ahead of you and that the ice and snow moved forward from the roof onto the windscreen when the vehicle under it is moving at 40mph!
    No argument with that.

    Right the To***r and the Pr**k are the same as I read it. If you follow another vehicle you should be looking towards your front and windscreen wipers are normally visible on the car in front. I followed the Car for some considerable time both at 30 and a 40MPH, I saw the snow and ice fall ( I can only deduce that his heaters had melted the bond between the ice and the bodywork) down his windscreen and his windscreen wipers change from Slow to fast. when he stopped at the next island the amount of snow and ice blinded him and again his WW went onto fast.

    We have a roundabout 1/2 mile from the Port, it's a left turn for trucks to continue onto the A14, idiots still go around in the outside lane beside 40' tilt tops, ever so funny to watch a 40'x8' (and up to a foot thick in the middle) slab of ice slide gracefully off the top of the trailer and on to said automobile as it makes the left turn. You'd think they guess something was amiss by all the ice on the bend already there from previous tilt tops?

    I've seen it suggested in all seriousness (in local newspapers usually) that HGV Drivers should get up on the roof of their truck or trailer (up to 15ft or more off the ground!) and shovel the snow off.....:confused: :rolleyes:

    Well it looks like the To***r did me a favour, I never realised I had window cover on my insurance so have claimed my new windscreen and it's going to cost me £60 instead of the £440 smackers it would have cost as it's a heated version

    Its 8:45am here in Adelaide and 31C already, we're heading for 39C today. Thats not especially hot for these parts but quite unusual for March. Unfortunately its quite humid with it.
    I'm however, not staying in Adelaide but driving 700km north for work, 44C expected at my destination.
