Don't Eat and Drive - Especially in England

How police used 10,000 pounds to stalk route of an apple-eating driver

A Nursery nurse was fined 60 pounds yesterday for holding an apple in her hand while driving around a bend after police used a spotter aircraft, a helicopter and a patrol car to win the case.

I read over this article carefully hoping to find some reason for this other than holding an apple while driving. Nope, that's it. Her crime was holding an apple while negotiating a bend. That would be funny if it were a skit.

“We accept that there are times when you can drive with one hand but, in holding an apple while negotiating a left-hand turn, we consider you not to have been in full control.

Big brother needs to chill just a bit.
