    Default Re: hovercrafting in the snow is it legal?????

    after watching this i wanted to try my hovercraft as we had snow here in bristol on wednesday, maybe its cos im new to hovercrafting but it handled like a pig and i kept sliding off the road and towards the pavement, it caused quite a stir with some the oldies who were spying on me through their curtains, i take it its illegal to use one on a public road but what about the extreme weather conditions could we get away with it ??? i guess its not exactly legal to take your rib up the high street when its flooded but does anyone ever get prosecuted? anyone know????

    Pretty good chance of an expensive collision with a parked car. I think theres something in theVehicle Construction and Use Regs about 90+% of the road vehicles weight being supported on wheels or something like that.
    More to the point is it any good at clearing the snow?? I can't get out up the hill in my road cos the grit bin isn't replenished. From previous experience I think it will only blow away fresh snow, once theres been a frost or wheeled vehicle compacting the snow the craft is useless as a snow blower. Is that everyone elses experience?
