Fine issued after Edinburgh driver spotted ‘in middle of road’ with frozen windows Police Scotland

An Edinburgh driver has been fined after being spotted “in the middle of the road” with frozen windows.

Police in south west Edinburgh said the driver was stopped on Wednesday morning in Hailesland by officers who spotted the obstructed windscreen.

A £50 was issued to the driver for the offence.

Earlier in the week, police warned members of the public to properly clear windscreens and windows before setting off on journeys amid freezing temperatures.

Meanwhile a man in Dumfries was banned from driving for a year and issued a £500 fine this week after being spotted driving with frozen windows last year.

Posting on X, formerly known as Twitter, Police Scotland said: “It seems not everyone saw our post yesterday.

“Driver stopped in Hailesland this morning by Wester Hailes Team 5 Response officers. Windscreen not cleared and driving in the middle of the road. Not cool. Could you see pedestrians or traffic? £50 fine issued.”
