Bloke drives with knees while manipulating two mobes

Hefty fine likely for Norfolk prestidigitator

A Norfolk man is potentially facing "six points on his licence and thousands of pounds in fines" after cops nabbed him allegedly driving with his knees while manipulating two mobile phones.

The unnamed 34-year-old driver was clocked earlier this month on a 70mph stretch of the A47 near Norwich during a two-week clampdown on illicit mobe use. Officers pulled him after noticing he had a phone clamped to his ear, but then discovered he was also texting on another phone with his other hand.

According to the Daily Mail, cops seized the prestidigitator's uninsured Vauxhall Tigra, and its owner will now likely face magistrates on a charge of driving without due care and attention, as well as a driving without insurance rap.

A Norfolk Police spokesman said: "Driving while using a mobile phone means you are not concentrating fully on the road. Using one mobile phone is silly but two mobile phones is amazingly silly." ®
