"If you wear inappropriate clothing that restricts manoeuvring correctly, you could find yourself with a £100 on-the-spot fine and three penalty points on your licence for careless driving.

"If an incident goes to court, the penalty could go up to a £5,000 fine, nine penalty points and even a driving ban."

Rule 97 of the Highway Code makes drivers aware of what they should do before setting off, including having the correct documentation.
