Windscreen cracked? Expect a ticket.

Poor driver. They were cracking on to get home.
Full story
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan...shire-46304000

Extract:
Police have expressed disbelief at pulling over a driver on the motorway who was trying to peer through a severely damaged windscreen at night.
The male Volkswagen driver was stopped by the Central Motorway Police Group (CMPG) at about 22:30 GMT on Wednesday.
He was travelling southbound on the M6 between junctions 14 and 13 for Stafford.
Officers ordered the owner to take his unroadworthy vehicle off the highway until the damage had been repaired.

There's cracked, and then there's cracked. The one in that article might even get you ticketed here in SC.

Usually if it doesn't impede driver vision, they got bigger fish to fry

UNLESS you are "disrespectful" when you are pulled over then they WILL find anything and everything that might be faulty.

And yet....
Nothing in the story on how it got cracked!
It looks like a head hit it from outside.
