A week long campaign by the Central Motorway Police Group (CMPG), tackling distracted driving has caught almost 300 motorists on roads in the West Midlands.
Eating porridge at the wheel, applying make-up and a biker using a mobile phone whilst riding were among the most shocking incidents. A number of motorists who were stopped were also found to have no insurance.
During the campaign from 23-26 May, 289 people were found using a hand-held device or driving carelessly.
First time offenders were offered a driver improvement course, while others were fined and given three points on their licence or face a day in court on suspicion of careless driving.
