On Thursday Rishi Sunak, who apologised 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.
British police issued Prime Minister 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.
Lancashire Police said on Twitter “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.”
Even though Sunak has apologised for his mistake and has been fined by the police for not wearing seatbelt, social media users did not like his ‘explanation’ for the same. A video of UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has been going viral on social media which is attracting heavy criticism. In the small clip which surfaced recently, Sunak was addressing the audience inside a moving car. He did not put his seatbelt on during the recording of the video and road safety experts and netizens at large were left unimpressed.
Rishi Sunak filmed a video while seated in the back seat of a moving car to promote his government’s new Levelling Up Fund announcements to fund over 100 projects around the country. Police motorbikes could be seen escorting his car as he addressed the camera. In England, passengers aged 14 and over are responsible for ensuring they wear a seat belt in cars, vans and other goods vehicles if one is fitted and drivers are responsible for passengers under 14.
