Multi-tasking driver found on laptop and drinking

275x250.jpgCops say a recent crackdown on distracted motorists discovered one who was using laptop and drinking a cup of coffee at the same time.

Officers from Hampshire Police say another driver was caught eating a pear with a knife, while a third was writing down the answers to a quiz on the radio.

The multi-tasking drivers were observed during a five day operation on the M27 and M3 involving a hired lorry, two marked cars and a motorcycle.

In total 84 vehicles stopped due to offences being witnessed and 39 people were caught using their mobile phone.

Sgt Paul Diamond said: "This should send a very loud message out to motorists. If you are caught using your mobile phone whilst driving you will face a £60 fine and three points on your licence."
