You have to be kidding
Look ma, no hands
Fine for driver's make-up offence
A motorist has been fined after being caught by a speed camera taking both hands off the wheel to apply make-up while driving near a north Wales town.
Pwllheli Magistrates Court heard on Wednesday how Donna Marie Maddock, 22, from Mold, was travelling at 32mph in a 40mph zone earlier this year.
She was using an eyeliner with one hand and a compact in the other.
Maddock was fined £200 after admitting careless driving. The court heard she was banned last week for drink-driving.
Magistrates heard that it was an Arrive Alive mobile anti-speeding van, equipped with a camera, that caught Maddock driving her Vauxhall Astra in Ala Road - the road out of Pwllheli towards Abersoch.
Ian Evans, prosecuting, said she had what appeared to be an eyebrow or eyelash pencil in one hand and something like a compact or mirror in the other.
The video was shown in court and Maddock, who did not appear for sentencing, could be seen with both hands off the steering wheel.
