M60 snow windscreen driver 'reckless'

Greater Manchester Police said a driver captured travelling along a motorway in Manchester with its windscreen almost entirely covered by snow was "incredibly reckless" and "risked lives".

The car was filmed driving along the Barton Bridge section of the M60 earlier this week by another motorist's dashboard camera.

GMP said it was investigating the footage.

"Not only is this motorist a risk to themselves and a risk to others on the M60, the driver is committing a criminal offence by driving with an impaired windscreen.

"It takes just ten minutes to defrost a windscreen but a split second to cause a serious accident."

It is thought the driver was travelling at around 50mph (80kph) at the time.
