Motorist fined for masturbating whilst driving

A DRIVER has been fined for masturbating at the wheel, police in Valencia revealed on Friday.

They say the motorist, who was seen driving his van erratically along the C/ San Vicente in the city last month, was not directly fined because of his anti-social behaviour, but for 'lack of attention' and 'endangering other road-users'.

Although officers confirmed that the story was true, Valencia city council was not willing to comment on the case.

Residents from Massanassa (Valencia), the man's home town, were horrified by the news.

Some said he should have lost his licence and that his 150-euro fine was insufficient.

They call his behaviour 'dangerous' and 'exhibitionist'.

Others have been heard to say 'he's obviously not right in the head'.

“I can't believe it – aren't there bits of wasteland he could do that on, or doesn't he have a home of his own?” one man remarked.

Police said the driver, who was caught last month, was fined because his action was 'equally as dangerous as talking on a mobile phone whilst driving'.
