A woman has been caught driving with “no hands” whilst eating her dinner at the wheel after she was disqualified from driving after accumulating 26 points on her licence.
50-year-old Amy Richards was stopped whilst driving through a busy town centre holding her plate with one hand and feeding herself with the other. Police officers were following her after discovering that her vehicle was untaxed.
They watched as she swerved across to the other side of the road while driving through Guildford town centre in Surrey on 22nd October last year.
As the officers got nearer to her vehicle they realised with amazement that she was eating her dinner at the wheel after being disqualified for having multiple points on her licence and two speeding offences.
The officers also found that she was uninsured to drive the vehicle and her ban would not be up until the following year. Richards was charged with driving while disqualified, using a vehicle while uninsured and driving while not in proper control.
After pleading guilty to all charges at Staines Magistrates Court she was issued with a further two year ban from driving and six more points on her licence. She must also now contact DVLA to get a new licence issued before she can resume driving at the end of her ban. She was ordered by the court to pay £287 in fines, costs and surcharges following her most recent offence.
