Driver spotted on motorway with feet on dashboard

A motorist has been photographed by police driving along a motorway with their feet on the dashboard.

The picture shows the driver of a pickup-style vehicle in the fast lane of the M5 in the West Country.

Devon and Cornwall Police and Dorset Police Roads Policing Team posted the picture to their Twitter account.

The officer who posted the picture said: “Cruise control taken to a whole new level. Driver snapped in lane 3 (yes the fast lane) of the M5.

“With apologies to the mighty Pink Floyd: ‘In all my years of policing I have never seen before, Someone more deserving the full penalty of law’!! Sgt B.”

The tweet attracted several responses on social media, including one from another local police officer.

Pc Phil Skedgell, of Devon and Cornwall Police, said: “Utterly stupid and dangerous. On which planet would / could this be considered appropriate?”

Other social media users demanded the motorist be prosecuted.
