DRIVERS have been warned that they could be fined £100 on the spot for wearing typical winter outfits.
As we move towards winter, motorists need to know that some outfits can be dangerous when driving.
Rule 97 of the Highway Code states drivers must have “footwear and clothing which does not prevent you using the controls in the correct manner.”
Car experts at Confused.com have offered a list of the clothing items that could cost drivers a hefty fine.
Surprisingly, drivers wearing coats and scarves can be fined £100 and get three points on their licence.
Large clothing items such as long coats and scarves may prevent drivers from using the vehicle’s controls effectively.
If the driver is involved in an accident, police could issue a ‘driving without care and attention’ charge and a fine.
Other tips for driving safely this winter are having the correct tyres on your vehicle and checking your tyre’s tread.
But, also, it is advisable to remove snow and grime from your number plate because the plate has to be visible to cameras and other drivers.
Louise Thomas, car insurance expert at Confused.com, said: “Road accidents can often be more common during the winter months because of the bad weather, density of traffic and difficult road conditions.
“It’s extremely important to ensure your vehicle is ready for the winter months, to make sure you are driving as safely as possible.
“No matter the weather, there are scenarios when your insurer may not pay out on an accident.
“Your car insurance should cover you in all weather conditions, but they may not pay out if you’ve broken a traffic offence which has caused an accident or failed to maintain your vehicle.
“For peace of mind, you should check the list of significant exclusions and limitations on your car insurance policy before setting off.”
FIFA are coming under pressure from Serbia to charge the goalscorers for their celebrations – with them demanding a two-match ban which is laid down by FIFA regulations.
Shaqiri was born in Kosovo (a former Serbian province which declared independence in 2008).
Serbia do not recognise Kosovo’s independence and relations remain tense with many families choosing to move to other European counties including Switzerland.
What did Xherdan Shaqiri and Granit Xhaka say about the gesture?
Speaking to reporters after the game, Shaqiri said: “You can see what I did and I think it’s just emotion. I’m very happy to score this goal. It was nothing more than that. I think we don’t have to speak about this now.”
Xhaka, said: “Frankly, my opponents did not interest me at all.
“It was for my people, who always supported me. For those who did not neglect me, in my homeland, where my parents’ roots are. These were purely pure emotions.”
Were Xhaka and Shaqiri punished for the celebration?
YESTERDAY we saw mum-of-22 Sue Radford jet off to New York with three of her daughters for a festive trip.
While their holiday got off to a bumpy start, with the family missing their connection and almost missing another flight, it appears that things have gone from bad to worse.
Sue later took to her Instagram account to reveal that upon arriving in New York, for their festive trip that was booked as a surprise by her husband Noel, the family were hit with another huge setback.
When Sue Radford, along with three of her daughters, touched down in the United States, at the JFK Airport, they got off the flight to find that their luggage was still in Heathrow.
But this meant only one thing – a shopping trip.
Sue explained: “Not one suitcase came off the conveyor, they are all still in Heathrow.
“So first stop, buying new clothes and toiletries”.
Although the family have had a bit of a rough start to their December trip, mum of Britain’s largest family and her daughters haven’t let it get them down.
Sue and her husband Noel are parents to Chris, 32, Sophie, 27, Chloe, 26, Jack, 24, Daniel, 22, Luke, 21, Millie, 20, Katie, 19, James, 18, Ellie, 16, Aimee, 15, Josh, 14, Max, 12, Tillie, 11, Oscar, 10, Casper, nine, Hallie, six, Phoebe, five, Archie, four, Bonnie, three, and Heidie, one.
Sadly the couple’s 17th child Alfie was still born on July 6, 2014.
The family famously doesn’t rely on benefits and is supported by their pie shop business.
The Radfords, who live in a 10-bed former care home, often show off their millionaire lifestyle on Instagram.
Sue later posted some pictures and videos to her Instagram stories, as they drove around the big city, looking at high-rise buildings, designer shops and Christmas lights.
Their first stop, which was recommended by many of their fans, was the Dyker Heights Christmas Lights tour.
The Dyker Heights Christmas Lights 2022 display has become one of the best New York attractions during the holiday season.
The streets were flooded with tourists admiring the beautiful Christmas trees and decorations, as the family stopped to watch thee stunning light display.
After stopping to buy toiletries and clothes for their trip, they then headed off to their hotel.
After a quick freshen up, the family were out again to look at more Christmas displays in a New York neighbourhood.
Sue was left very impressed at the dazzling display, as she said: “Wow, just wow”.
The festive spirit was certainly in the air as families gathered in the streets to look at the beautiful lights.
The Brooklyn neighbourhood is home to the most over-the-top Christmas light decorations with life-sized Santas, sleighs, snowmen and some houses even play Christmas carols from loudspeakers.

“As part of our investigation, we have now established that a pick up style vehicle may have been in the area at the time and we are keen to speak to the driver, he or she may have witnessed the crash.
“I would like to thank the public for their assistance so far.
“But I would continue to appeal to anyone who witnessed the crash to call Police Scotland 101, quoting incident number 2738 of Thursday, 24 November, 2022.”
