Driver Fined for Eating Banana

In wake of our recent post of a driver eating cereal at the wheel, it looks like this is not the only case of a motorist taking the opportunity to get in a quick snack whilst driving.

Elsa Harris, from Bournemouth was hit with a £100 fine and the choice of either three penalty points or needing to complete a driver awareness course – All for eating a banana when behind the wheel.

Despite the fact that most of the fruit had been pre-peeled at home, and that the car was actually stationary in a traffic jam at the time, Elsa momentarily took her hands away from the wheel to remove the remaining skin from the fruit – But was spotted by eagle-eyed police.

Was this punishment too severe? Let us know your thoughts below!

Safe driving from Britannia!
