  1. There is no Halachic obligation to pay someone for washing your windscreen against your wishes. The best thing to do is to let the person know before they begin that you do not want them to clean your windshield. Having said that, if the driver is obviously Jewish it might be correct to give the person some money even though they did not want to so as not to cause any kind of Chillul Hashem.
