Man Caught Driving With Hands Behind Head Loses License For One Year. [Video]

Guy driving a car with his hands behind his head.

The NSA has nothing on the traffic police in the UK – just ask Richard Newton of Whitby, North Yorkshire. He was filmed driving with both hands behind his head for 30 seconds at 62 mph. He was caught by a police ‘safety’ camera van on the A171 between Whitby and Guisborough on August 9th. Mr Newton had argued he was in control of the car but was found guilty of dangerous driving.

According to Dave Brown, from North Yorkshire Police:

“This case demonstrates two things. One is the sheer stupidity of some people who put others in danger and the other is the ability of our safety camera to capture a range of offences.”

Mr. Newton was given a 12-month driving ban and he must complete 100 hours of community service. Plus, he was fined £625 ($1025).

Watching the video of this guy driving all relaxed with his hands behind his head makes me wonder: were these officers and magistrates just jealous of this guy because he could drive his car like this? I mean, look at him – he has to be a porn star to drive hands-free like this….wait a second, what? He was using his knees to drive? Oh, then the hell with him. [Arbroath]
