Random, from @VW. It goes without saying that attempting to drive a car like this could land you in trouble with the law in most European countries. In Luxembourg for instance, failing to de-ice all windows – plus the wing mirrors, number plates, head and tail lights – not clearing snow from the bonnet, roof and boot, or leaving the engine running unattended, exposes you to a fine of €74.
