News: Driver Warned By Police For Satnav Stupidity

pocketgpsworld.com
Greater Manchester Police stopped a driver on the M56 and gave him 'words of advice' after they observed him driving with a satnav stuck to the windscreen directly in front of him.

A Police spokesman said: "This vehicle was stopped and the driver given advice regarding the placement of his sat nav. This was clearly obstructing his view and directly in his line of sight, you must have a full clear view of the road and traffic ahead, obstructing this is an offence. There were two child passengers in the car which led us to take immediate action and having been given advice moved the sat nav to a more appropriate place and was issued with a traffic offence report (TOR) before being allowed to continue his journey."

Sadly this isn't as uncommon as you may think, I have personally seen drivers with their satnav in the exact same position a number of times and you have to wonder what the heck they were thinking, or not thinking perhaps.
