In some extreme cases where police officers believe you have put other drivers at risk, heavier fines could also be issued.
This is likely if your windscreen becomes completely blocked with dirt and drivers are then unable to see vital hazards.
If a case is sent to court, road users could be hit with a charge for dangerous driving which would see a £5,000 fine issued.
Alongside this, motorists could be hit with up to nine penalty points on their licence as well as a temporary driving ban.
