In these cold winter mornings many may choose to ensure the car is defrosted with the engine running outside their properties whilst other tasks are undertaken.

Beware ! The Highway Code R123 specifically states that you should not leave a parked vehicle unattended with the engine running or leave a vehicle running unnecessarily on a public road.

The owner runs the risk of a £20 fixed penalty if they refuse to switch the engine off when required to do so by an Authorised Person on behalf of the local council. In turn this could increase to £80.
