We all know that to text and drive is a no-no. But a recent news article from the Daily Mail as quoted on Ananova.com highlights the dangers of attending to personal hygiene and driving.
A businessman from Ayrshire, United Kingdom, claims he was waved over by police after blowing his nose while stationary in a queue of traffic and given a ticket for not being in proper control of his car.
The self-employed furniture restorer is refusing to pay the £60 fine and the case may now proceed to court.
The Daily Mail newspaper states that the policeman involved is nicknamed 'PC Shiny Buttons' for his zealous approach to the job, which saw him issue a £50 ticket for littering to a man who accidentally dropped a £10 note in the street.
