(CS) Police are reminding motorists in Luxembourg that they need to de-ice all windows of their vehicles, as well as their head and tail lights and licence plates before going on a winter drive.

In case of snow, the white flakes need to be brushed from the roof, bonnet and trunk, as the snow can otherwise be a hazard to others driving behind.

Rearview mirrors also need to be clean and clear at all times, and licence plates need to be visible.

Drivers caught without having de-iced and de-snowed their vehicles can be fined 74 euros, according to “Code de la Route” regulations.

It is also forbidden to leave the motor of your car running for a prolonged period of time while de-icing.
