One driver who was caught watching TV while at the wheel has been widely condemned by both fellow passengers and also road safety charities.
The driver can clearly be seen watching TV in his car as he approaches a roundabout and after being captured on camera by motorist Jon Ashley, said driver has been called an idiot – amongst other less printable things.
Plenty of charities have already condemned the driver, with the RAC Foundation and Brake branding the driver as seriously irresponsible and an accident waiting to happen, while making it clear that anyone watching moving images while at the wheel of a car should be fined by police.
James McLoughlin from Brake claimed:
We’re calling on the government to increase fines and make traffic policing a national priority to deter risky, multi-tasking drivers.Advertisement
