BRITAIN’S dirtiest drivers have shared snaps of their filthy cars – and there’s a warning for anyone who felt a jolt of recognition.
The unrepentant Louise Duffy, who lives in Manchester, has claimed the dubious honor of being the nation’s messiest vehicle.
Photos taken in her car show crumbs and debris, child car seats piled high with grocery bags and a single high-heeled boot.
The 32-year-old said she was thrilled to have won the Euro Car Parts competition.
“I’m incredibly excited,” she said.
“While some people might not be happy to claim this title, I certainly am.
“The car gets so messy because my lucky kids seem to know where everything is which makes for a lot of chaos.”
Eddie Eames from Paisley, Scotland was also in the top 10.
The footwell of the passenger seat is literally filled with junk.
The 32-year-old is apparently a big caffeine fan – much of the litter is either disposable coffee cups or soda cans.
And Ashley Godfrey, who lives in Horsham, West Sussex, appears to use his car for storage rather than transport.
The back seat is completely crammed with clothes, shoes, boxes and even a drying rack – making it impossible for him to pick up a passenger.
However, Brits have been warned they could face a £100 fine and even three points on the spot for a messy car.
There is no specific fine for disorder.
However, too much litter could fall under the law on driving without due care.
More serious cases can go to court and result in a £2,500 fine and disqualification.
Helen Robinson of Euro car parts said: “Cleaning your car can often be at the bottom of your list of jobs.
“We are sure these images will be a familiar sight to many.
“By cleaning your car from time to time, you and your passengers will have a safer and more enjoyable driving experience.
“We recommend, especially now that many vehicles are not used as much, that you clean the interior of your car fairly regularly, as unpleasant odors can build up.”
She said winner Louise was awarded cleaning products.
“We hope the cleaning package will help Louise keep her car sparkling clean from now on,” she said.
It’s just as important to keep them sparkling clean outside of your vehicle.
A dirty windshield is not only dangerous, but can also result in points and a fine under the Negligence Act.
Mucky mirrors can also limit your vision, and you’ll be fined the same.
and hidden license plates Can result in fines of up to £1,000 if digits are not clearly legible.
