Car owners are planning to leave themselves an extra 3 seconds today for the task of de-icing their cars before setting off.
Local car owner, Peter Thape plans to sling a kettle of boiling water over his windscreen, in order to create a fancy frozen waterfall pattern for him to peer through for the first twenty minutes of driving.
Thape’s usual method of angling his entire body sideways so that he can see through the one inch gap created by the demister has been abandoned due to a painful neck.
‘Yesterday was easier; my wife had a one inch gap in the windscreen on her side, and I could see through nearly two inches on my side of the road,’ said Thape.
‘If we had to reverse, we had to get the kids involved,’ added Thape.
