Careless talk costs car driver

A GRAN CANARIA driver has been fined for simply TALKING to a passenger while driving.

Armando Chiriqui, 41, was fined €80 for “driving a vehicle without maintaining constant attention to the road.”

Chiriqui said he was pulled over in what he thought was a routine check, but was shocked to be fined for having a chat.

He insisted: “We were not a danger to the public.”

Chiriqui has decided not to fight the fine because of the likely cost of a court case, so instead chose to publicise his ‘ridiculous’ fine.
