Can you drive with a cracked windscreen?
Driving with a broken windscreen is dangerous. A crack can seriously limit your view of the road, and that could lead to accidents. This is especially true in bright sunshine, when a crack or chip could catch the light and dazzle you.
The Highway Code states that vehicles must be in a ‘roadworthy’ condition, which includes the windows and windscreen. If you’re driving with a cracked windscreen, you could find yourself with up to three penalty points and a fine of £2,500, if you’re stopped by the police.
These rules apply even if you have a current MOT certificate.
