    I can't take the credit for the pic - though a mate of mine posted this on his facebook after announcing the 3 points and fine.

    I've done a search and cannot find it reported on any major news source, but there are a number of forums discussing it.

    The thinking is that it is dangerous if the snow falls off and obscures the visibility for the car behind.


    In my opinion this thinking is completely flawed because:


    a) it's unrealistic in this snowstorm to completely clear your car of snow before driving off -- there's 2ft of snow in most places right now!


    b) people are driving around at 10mph on roads that are covered in snow -- excess snow on cars is hardly about to fly off uncontrollably at that speed;


    c) the vision of other cars is ALREADY obscured and - in the most case - peoples driving is accounting for the poor visibility.


    If you take the "I'm terribly sorry officer" angle and agree to clear the snow off your roof when you are stopped then you are unlikely to get an FPN.

    If the Police do decide to give you an FPN (Fixed Penalty Notice) then you can refuse it if you want to, and request a court hearing. You have 28 days to decide whether to accept a FPN or not, so my personal suggestion would be to take this optioN

    Bedfordshire Police have issued a statement. It's a hoax! Although an excessive amount of snow could be deemed as "driving a vehicle in a dangerous condition" which could attract a FPN.
