Yep, if you live in an area with frequent snow, cleaning your car is useless, it's dirty again within a few kilometers.

Well... The snow itself is clean and it does not make anything dirty.

But when the show melts, either naturally or by salting, then the dirt particles on the road surface get loose, and everything gets dirty.

If the snow does not melt because of the temperature, and the roads are kept open without salt, the cars remain clean.

At the temperatures below zero Celcius, the snow is very lightweight. The car's aerodynamics makes the new show to whirl, and the snow is stuck at the rear, making the license plate invisible. That is the reason why you seldom can see rear-facing traffic cameras in the far north.

When I've looked at these pictures, I considered that you haven't car washes in Sweden :P It's hard to spot even a few such dirty cars in Poland.

Do you not have gravel roads in Poland ?

In my region (Upper Silesia, heavily urbanised and quite rich) almost no. Maybe it sounds incredibly, because, hm, there is a little difference in wealth between Sweden and Poland (don't bewitch ourselves), but gravel here are only short and rarely used stretches.

What about winter maintenance of the roads? Don't they use salt, sand, chemicals etc. to melt the ice and prevent slippery dangerous conditions?

Aye, gotta be visible. If the police can't read it, they'll be more than happy to pull you for it. To be fair, if it's just dirty, they're more likely to insist you clean it there and then, rather than fine you.

This time of the year many license plates are not visible due to snow and dirt, time to invent a wiper for license plates or similar device ?

People are lazy. I guess it's too much of a bother to stop at a petrol station, grab the squeegie, wipe the plate off and dry it off with a paper towel. I do it just about every time I needed to stop and clean the lights on my P/U.

Yesterday I've seen some interesting thing. When I was going home from my ski trip to Italy, on Italian A22 motorway near Bressanone there occured Polizia's Audi A4 (why Audi?!). They've kept left lane immediately before enter the motorway. Unfortunately, a short while earlier the same has done some guy from Austria in Opel Astra J (but he was on the right lane), with completely snowy rear plate. When his car appeared in policemans's sight, this on passenger's seat stopped him at emergency lane.

Yes, of course.

To keep the rear plate free of snow while driving on snowy roads you must stop and clean it every half a kilometer.
