Teeth cleaning and putting on make-up - just two examples of drivers bad habits on our roads

The video captured is just a small selection of the 227 driving offences detected during Operation Tramline - a five day police operation run by officers from the Roads Policing Unit across the motorways of Hampshire and the Thames Valley.

A lorry driver brushing his teeth - toothbrush in one hand and water bottle in the other - is one of the examples highlighted, together with video of a woman applying her make-up, checking her face in the rear-view mirror whilst driving on the M27.

Operation Tramline resulted in a total of 198 motorists being being prosecuted for driving offences, most of them driving whilst distracted.
