Sunak fined by police for failing to wear seatbelt

LONDON: British police issued PM Rishi Sunak with a fine on Friday for riding in a car without wearing his seat belt in order to film a clip for social media. Sunak, who apologised on Thursday for what he called a “brief error of judgement”, filmed a video in the back seat of his car while travelling in the north of England, without wearing a seat belt. “Following the circulation of a video on social media showing an individual failing to wear a seat belt while a passenger in a moving car in Lancashire we have today issued a 42-year-old man from London with a conditional offer of fixed penalty,” Lancashire Police said on Twitter.
Earlier, Sunak’ spokesperson said, “That was a brief error of judgment. The PM removed his seatbelt to film a small clip. He fully accepts this was a mistake and apologises about it. He believes everyone should wear a seatbelt. ” In the UK, passengers caught failing to wear a seatbelt, unless covered by a valid medical exemption, can be given an on-the-spot fine of £100, increasing to £500 if the case goes to court.
