Probably the best way to see things - watch the raindrops... Unless you're driving, of course.

ARRRRGGGGGHHHHHHH let me out! ! ! Clean the ********* windscreen, and the wipers, don't make driving in bad weather worse by not doing some very minor maintenance, there are some really good products to help keep the windscreen clear in rain and snow, Rain-X is my preferred brand, used in aviation also. This situation is so tiring and dangerous.
This image could be a road safety advert for how not to do it.

Don't worry, Nigel - this is the passenger-side view, and the wipers are working pretty well - though the blade is leaving lines suggesting it may need replacing. Though the passenger side blade matters far less than the driver's side, about which we can't see any evidence.

What's that wet stuff?! Not seen any rain for well over a week. Provided a great abstract here, Helen 😃👍

That's a pretty bad rainstorm if the windshield is blurred like you show it! Made a great abstract!

Helen - I think this picture has tapped a lot of uncertainties, and also a whole lot of assumptions... After all, most of the world drives on the wrong side of the road, and could easily assume this view is through the driver's side of the screen! For me, part of the beauty of it is that it has shock value until you look more closely. I had an eye test a couple of weeks ago, and my wife drove me home (my optician uses dilating eyedrops for a better view of my retinae), and I had a view very much like this! This is relevant because a moving view is different from a static one, and I found that I could still see major obstacles really rather easily: your still image is scarier than video would be!
