It can be quite troublesome when we leave our car parked at the open when it’s winter. Car owners may expect to drive off immediately, but they often can’t do that. Oil in their car could become too thick and the engine will be harder to turn on. Another problem is that the windscreen can be covered with a layer of ice. It needs to be removed, because it severely impairs the driver’s vision. In a busy day, car owners may only be able to remove a portion of the ice, increasing the risk when they are driving. The best thing to do is to prevent the formation of ice on the windscreen on the first place. We should be able to perform this, even when we are away from home and we should be made aware of our options.
In many cases, driving with some ice still on the windscreen can be classified as driving without due car and attention. If stopped by the police car owners could receive a fixed penalty and it is possible that it will be classified as an offence of dangerous driving. If found guilty, the court could impose a hefty fine to the driver. Iced up windscreen should be cleared whenever possible or the driver could incur financial and legal problems. The problem is whether they can do this quickly and easily, especially when car owners are in a hurry. In this case, prevention is always better then the cure and it’s a good thing if car owners are able to plan ahead. There are a number of measures that can be implemented to save us a lot of stress, effort and time.
A good prevention strategy is to avoid parking the car overnight without being covered. It is a good idea to ark our car in a garage or at least under the car porch. This could significantly reduce the formation of ice on the windscreen. This is an obviously effective method to prevent the problem and many people are too lazy to put their car in the right sport. Also, by putting our car in the garage, we would be able to lower the overall insurance premiums. The agreement may clearly say that we need to leave the car in the garage during the night. This would prevent the car from being stolen or damaged, if it is left parked at the side of the road. Some houses don’t have a garage or during a trip, car owners may not be able to cover their cars. A quick solution would be to use a commercial car cover that could protect the entire car from direct exposure of snow and ice. The added benefit is that the internal parts of the engine won’t be as cold and it would be easier to start our car.
