It annoys me when drivers don't clear the snow off their roof. It's a hazard in this weather when it comes loose and flies into the path of my car. It's nervewracking enough, driving on icy roads, without having to deal with massive clumps of snow flying at your face! :(

I've seen some that have only cleared enough to see out of half the windscreen this week. I'd love to know what goes through the minds of these idiots.

It's baffling! Especially when it takes less than a WHOLE minute to clear off pretty much all the snow from a car.

yep, big coat and a glove and used my arm to sweep all the snow off one side of car, round the other and did the same. Some of these precious bleeders are to soft to pick up a scraper, never mind use what they were born with.

I drove past a punto on the way to the hospital last night who had iced up windows, snow all over the car and a tiny hole in the front windscreen.

Needless to say she drove through a red light. Where are the police? They should be pulling people like this over!

My only issue now are the washer jets being frozen up. The rear jet seems to work fairly reliably but the fronts have gone from passenger side trickle to not spraying at all. I miss my jets! I was sprayed by a gritting truck the other night and all I couldn't clean my windscreen! The wipers just left streak heaven...

I ran the missus up to the supermarket on Friday. While waiting for her to complete the shopping (I am band from going in with her because I am too impatient and aggressive apparently) I was watching the traffic driving allong the still icy road. One car a big 4x4 braked and the 7 or 8 inches of snow still on the roof slid down and covered the whole windscreen he opened the drivers window stuck his head out and carried on driving off toward the motorway. I had to confirm with other shoppers around that I had just seen that unbelievable! There where a lot of cars around the carpark where no attempt had been made to clear any snow except on the windscreen and then only what the wipers removed. These people should be banned for life from ever touching a car again there is no excuse.

My jets work again! The hour and a half drive along the motorway must've helped thaw out the frozen water, what's coming out now is pretty much pure screenwash solution.
