windshield time
 n.— «The Ward County Commission drafted a resolution by a 4-1 vote, with Lee dissenting, in support of the judge coming in to Minot from Stanley. Judge Robert Holte, who currently hears cases in Minot, had been based in Stanley. “It showed that we were wasting windshield time with a judge in Stanley spending four or five days (a week) in Minot,” Watne said. “Windshield time” is a term for time spent actually on the road driving in the course of duty.» —“To build or not to build?” by Dave Caldwell Mintot Daily News (North Dakota) Oct. 28, 2006.
