Drivers face huge £1000 FINE if they fail to clear snow and frost from their NUMBER PLATES - 'Don't forget them!'
The Met Office has issued a series of yellow weather warnings across the UK for snow
Drivers could face a huge fine worth as much as £1,000 if they fail to clear snow and frost from their number plates.
Earlier today, the Met Office issued several weather warnings and cautioned that the worst is yet to come as heavy snow hits southern England.
Overnight sleet, snow and rain will leave surfaces slippery leading to potential injuries.
It is also expected that multiple areas around the UK will drop well below 0C with forecasters predicting that another Arctic blast would sweep across the country from the north.

The Met Office advised people to leave more time for their journeys so that they can make sure they are safe whilst travelling and account for any accidents that may delay them.
But, unless motorists want to find themselves handed a hefty £1,000 fine, they should also take the time in the morning to clear and snow or frost from their number plates.
According to the Highway Code drivers must “be able to see, so clear all snow and ice from all your windows” and “must ensure that lights are clean and number plates are clearly visible and legible”.
The DVLA said: “There is a specific offence under the Vehicle Excise and Registration Act 1994 of obscuring or allowing a registration mark to be not easily distinguishable.
“All registration numbers must be displayed clearly and correctly on the number plate – this helps the police, enforcement agencies and members of the public to correctly identify a vehicle to assist road safety and traffic enforcement".
