In a warning to other road-users, police posted pictures online of the car which show how the driver only was able to peer through a very small patch on the windscreen while the rest of the glass remained obscured.
A PSNI spokesperson commented: “As we started another night shift, officers from Mahon Road station immediately came across another driver who was driving through a busy town centre in Portadown with next to zero visibility.
"Rather than risk the lives of pedestrians and other road users, this driver should’ve taken a brief few minutes to properly defrost their windscreen.
"He has now been issued with three points and a £65 fine for not having a full view of the road.”
