The main function of the windshield and the other glass of a vehicle is to provide proper visibility to the steering wheel. In the first place, for the driver, because the 90% of the information we receive the lead that comes to us through the view. And in the second place, for the cameras of the security systems of ADAS, which tend to be located in the top center of the windshield, at the height of the inside rearview mirror.
A broken windshield or dirty it impairs the vision of both and dramatically increases the risk of an accident . For this reason most of the fines related to the windows are related with the visibility. The General Regulation of Circulation makes it clear that "the glazed surface of the vehicle shall allow, in any case, the visibility transparent conductor over the entire path through which to flow" and also that "the driver of a vehicle is required to maintain the necessary field of vision".
The following situations are subject to penalty of 200 euros , without loss of points. In addition, under article 84 of the LSV, the traffic agents may immobilize the vehicle if it has "deficiencies that pose a risk especially serious for road safety", which could be a windshield damaged.
-ride with the windshield or the rest of the glass damage or breakage , which hinder a correct visibility.
-ride with the windshield or the rest of the crystals with a layer of dirt or ice that hinders a correct visibility.
-ride with the windshield or the rest of the windows with sheets, stickers, wipes, or other items not authorized , which hinder a correct visibility. The sticker of the MOT has to go in the top right corner of the windshield and the distinctive environment of the DGT, in the bottom right-hand corner; in both cases, their inner face.
-Circle with a holder for a mobile phone attached to the windshield in an area that makes difficult a correct visibility .
- laminated or tinted incorrect can also be punished with a fine of 200 euros, without the withdrawal of points in three different cases. In the first place, if you use adhesive sheets or wipes, without carry two exterior mirrors. Also the use of tinted glasses or coloured not approved (the laminated sheets Carglass account with a type-approval certificate for the MOT). And finally, when you use tinted glasses or tinted windows, front (with the exception of people who suffer from lupus or another disease that is especially sensitive to the rays of the sun, as well as official vehicles or protected users).
-Also we can get a ticket with 80 euros, without points, to bring the brush the worn out wiper . If you are producing intense rainfall and the windshield wipers do not work, or their operation is very poor, the traffic agents may immobilize the vehicle for this reason.Updated Date: 27 September 2019, 08:03
