Driven to Distraction II

An unidentified 30-year-old man driving in Melbourne, Vic., Australia, was pulled over by police after they observed his car swerving. The arresting officer noted that the driver had a mobile phone in each hand, and explained he was moving information from one phone to the other. But, the man told Sgt. Rob Atkinson, there was no problem because he always had one finger on the wheel. Atkinson cited the Fitzroy man with careless driving and for using a handheld mobile while driving. The fines, he said, added up to more than A$500 (US$450), plus six points against his license. (RC/Melbourne Herald Sun) ...Funny, but he was doing something else with one finger as he drove off.
