    Spotted a NW Police patrol car, reg no. CX65ADO, on the Wrexham Industrial Estate yesterday afternoon around 16.10. The driver was drinking from a bottle whilst the vehicle was in motion.

    No wonder they’re losing the respect of the public !

    Although the RAC is not The Law its a good info piece

    1. Is it illegal to eat and drive?

    No. It’s not illegal to eat and drive at the same time. However, if you present a significant danger while snacking on the move, the police could prosecute you for careless driving if they consider you not in proper control of the vehicle.

    A study by Leeds University found that motorists who ate while driving were actually 44% slower than usual…

    2. Is it illegal to drink when driving?

    Similar to eating, drinking at the wheel is not illegal, but it can carry the same careless driving penalty.

    The same Leeds University study found that those who took a sip of drink at the wheel were 22% slower and 18% more likely to show erratic lane control.”

    You’ve got to be careful with the drink driving limits these days
