    Driver fined for blowing his nose

    Political correctness gone mad.

    Driver fined 'for blowing his nose'

    An Ayrshire businessman says he has been fined by the police for blowing his nose while driving.

    Michael Mancini, from Prestwick, said he was sitting in stationary traffic with the handbrake on when he used a tissue to clean his nose.
    He claimed he was waved over by four police officers and given a fixed penalty for not being in proper control of his car.

    He has refused to pay the 60 fine and the case may now proceed to court.
    The 39-year-old, who runs a furniture restoration business in Ayr, said: "The traffic was nose to tail in the high street and the traffic stopped and I thought that was quite a good time (to blow his nose).

    "I stopped the van and put the handbrake on. I saw four police officers nearby. The traffic moved on and I was waved across by an officer.
    "He said I was not in control of the vehicle."

    Mr Mancini said he was "absolutely stunned" by the police action.

    He added: "I said to the officer 'You're joking, you're having a laugh'.

    Mr Lockhart said: "In the letter I said - 'It should have been obvious to the officers what was going on and it beggars belief a ticket was issued'.

    Mr Lockhart said he was waiting to hear if a court date has been set.
    "We will be pleading on his (Mr Mancini's) behalf not guilty," he added.

    A spokeswoman for Strathclyde Police said: "A 39-year-old man is the subject of a report to the procurator fiscal in connection with an alleged traffic offence."

    must of been a bad day for the coppers to do that, and you say Thai cops are bastards

    Damn dirty nose-blower... They should lock him up and throw away the key as he's obviously a menace to society... What was he thinking, using a tissue...

    The ticket might have been issued because he looked like he was wiping the arse of the bloke in front. Pervert.

    I farted the other day while a cop car was close, I think they could smell it but they must have been feeling generous and let me off for letting rip and driving at the same time
