The blog this week is about the use of air fresheners in your vehicle. Read on to find out more:  

As per our previous blogs regarding the placement of satellite systems and dash cams in your Volvo or Toyota there are rules regarding the use of air fresheners in your vehicle. If you have an air freshener, or anything for that matter, dangling from your cars rear view mirror, you open yourself up to receiving an on the spot fine of £100. If the case were to go to court, or in the event of an accident you leave yourself open to a fine of up to £1000 and 3 penalty points on your driving licence. It clearly states in the Highway Code that your windscreen and windows must be kept clean and free from obstructions to your vision. The Road Traffic Act also stipulates this. However the law is rarely enforced, but our advice to you would be to leave those fluffy dice at home and use an air freshener that plugs into the vents of your Volvo or Toyota. Happy Motoring Folks!
