ANYONE who has been shopping with a small car will know that it can be difficult to fit things when you have limited space.

But is it okay to stack up cars so that can’t see out your review mirror?

If could be bad news for Santa if his sleigh is too full, because it could cost him a fine.

A VicRoads spokesman said regulation 297 of the Victorian Road Safety Rules 2009 states that a driver must have a clear view of the road behind them.

He said if drivers do not follow this rule, they could receive a $233 infringement.

The rule states that motorists must have proper control of their vehicle at all times and not having a clear view could prevent drivers from this control.
