According to the RAC, authorities consider driving with a cracked windscreen a motoring offence.
Specifically, it could constitute the use of a motor vehicle in a dangerous condition.
Under the Highway Code, drivers must ensure they have well-maintained glass which gives them a good view of the road ahead.
People caught driving with a crack in their windscreen may incur a hefty penalty beyond the cost of fixing the damage.
