The Following Activities Amount to Criminal Offences | Kangs Motoring Law Advisors
- Paying with your mobile phone at a ‘Drive through’- this amounts to using your phone at the wheel and could result in a £200 fine plus six points on your license.
- Using your mobile phone as a ‘satnav’ without properly securing it to your car. Again, this could attract a £200 fine and six points.
- Allowing a passenger to hold a baby. New safety laws require a baby to be secure in a properly affixed child seat and a breach attracts a fine of £100.
- Deliberately driving through a puddle thereby splashing pedestrians could attract a fine of up to £5,000 as well as three points.
- Making hand gestures or swearing at other drivers constitutes ‘disorderly behavior,’ attracting a fine of up to seventy five per cent of your weekly income.
- Using your horn, other than to warn others of your presence, could attract a fine up to one thousand pounds.
- Failing to display a legible number plate because, by way of example, it is dirty, may attract a fine of up to one thousand pounds.
- As opposed to speeding, driving too slowly beneath the prevailing speed limit could attract nine points, if such driving is considered to be creating a danger.
