To prevent your car’s windshield from freezing, you can try parking your car facing east when parking overnight.

By doing this, the sun will naturally defrost your windshield and you won’t have to scrap your windshield.

Jack Couzens, the AA’s road policy officer, expressed some hesitation over the parking trick.

He said: “Many drivers will leave before the winter sun comes up or even has a chance to burn off the ice, which means it doesn’t matter which direction the car is facing.”

But if you’re going after sunrise, this trick might be worth trying.

If you are a street parker, it may be too difficult for you to find a spot pointing in the right direction.

If you can’t park facing east, you can spray your windshield with a solution of one part water and two parts rubbing alcohol.

Alcohol does not freeze, and spraying it on your windshield will help prevent your windshield from freezing.
