Man using two phones while driving bannedAugust 16th, 2011 - 6:46 pm ICT by IANS
London, Aug 16 (IANS) A man in Britain was caught using two mobile phones while driving on a 70 miles per hour limit road — he has now been banned from driving.
David Secker, 34, was pulled over by police after they spotted him on a phone held with his right hand while holding another phone in his left hand. He made them wait until he had finished his phone-conversation, Daily Express reported Tuesday.
Secker declined texting on the second phone. He maintained he was just passing on a phone number but was still holding on to the steering wheel.
Norwich magistrates found Secker guilty of driving with no insurance, using a mobile phone while driving and not being in proper control of a vehicle.
He was also fined 150 pounds.
