But drivers are now advised not to wash their cars on the street while the coronavirus is locked.
Dr. Hilary Jones caused indignation at Good Morning Britain when he told Piers Morgan that he was not allowed to clean his Aston Martin.
Piers, the GMB presenter who co-hosts with Susanna Reid was left puzzled by the rule.
But the television doctor insisted that he was not allowed to put a sponge and hose on his engine.
Piers asked, “Can I wash my Aston Martin on the street?” The windows are getting all dirty and I have to go to work.
“I imagine there are a lot of people driving, not Aston Martins, but vans, trucks.
” What is the rule? There is no open car wash. Are you allowed, according to government directives, to wash your car? “
Dr. Hilary stressed that no one should wash their car on the street as it poses an unnecessary risk.
The doctor said, “Washing your car is not essential outside the windshield for added safety. Leave your dirty car for the time being. “
Dr. Hilary replied, “It is not essential. How many millions of cars are there? Can you imagine if everyone started washing their car because they had free time.
“You don’t need shiny bumpers to get to work. You just need a clean windshield. “
He added, “I don’t think you need to take out the pipe and the bucket and the foam. You really don’t need to do it. Just clean the window to get a cloth and you’re good to go. “
