Who'd know that blowing out your nose while stuck in traffic is illegal?
A businessman was fined £60 and had his driving license endorsed for blowing his nose while stuck in a traffic jam.
Michael Mancini, a furniture restorer from Prestwick, Ayrshire, was given the fixed penalty and docked three penalty points after leaning over and pulling out a paper handkerchief to wipe his nose when stuck in Ayr High Street.
Mancini said that his van was in neutral with its handbrake on, and that he was flabbergasted when he was signaled into a parking bay by an approaching policeman. Matters became “a little bit surreal”, he said, when he wound down his window and was promptly charged by the stern-faced PC Stuart Gray, a man known locally as “Shiny Buttons” in recognition of his zealous attention to detail. “I honestly thought it was a joke,” said Mancini, 39, who was booked for failing to be in control of his vehicle.
