British Prime Minister Fined for Not Wearing Seatbelt

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has been fined for not wearing a seatbelt when he was seated in a moving vehicle, the BBC reported. According to information, Lancashire police stated that it has “issued a 42-year-old man from London with a conditional offer of a fix penalty” on the offence.

The British prime minister’s office said that Sunak “fully accepts this was a mistake and has apologised,” adding that he would pay the fine. In Britain, passengers found failing to wear a seatbelt when one is available can be fined 100 pounds sterling (approx PKR 28,550), and can be increased to 500 pounds (approx PKR 142,950) if the case goes to court.

The offence was revealed in a video posted to Sunak’s Instagram page, which was recorded when the British prime minister was travelling across the north of England for a government campaign.
