Motorist caught driving with feet up on dashboard

Cruising for punishment

POLICE are used to stopping drivers for putting their foot down but Devon and Cornwall road cops were more taken aback by a driver they snapped in the outside lane of the M5 with his feet up… on the dashboard.

An aghast officer from the joint county Roads Policing Team posted images of the driver on Twitter, referencing lyrics by rock band Pink Floyd: “In all my years of policing I have never seen before, Someone more deserving the full penalty of law.”

The images appear to show both of the motorist’s bare feet touching the windscreen, ahead of the steering wheel.

Other Twitter users branded the driver “stupid”, “ridiculous” and “dangerous”.

Others wondered what might happen in the event of an accident.

And of course, some could help but notice the police using the term “fast lane” to describe lane 3 of the motorway.
