Driver fined after iPhone, tablet tied to steering wheel

Driver fined after iPhone, tablet tied to steering wheel

The officer approached the auto and saw a phone attached to the steering wheel with a piece of string, and a tablet wedged between the wheel and the phone.

This guy took distracted driving to a whole new level.

Vancouver police pulled the man over Wednesday morning after an officer spotted him wearing headphones near Cambie Street and Broadway.

The Lexus driver presumably mounted the two devices because he needed both hands to operate his five-speed manual transmission.

Perhaps unwilling to wait for the next episode of "Stranger Things", a Vancouver man was caught driving with a tablet and an iPhone tied to his steering wheel, in what police say is one of the strangest cases of distracted driving they've ever seen. "We are reminding our drivers to leave their devices alone behind the wheel". "And although our officer felt education was appropriate in this incident".

Earlier this week, we brought you the story of a driver in Vancouver who was fined 368 Canadian dollars for playing Pokémon Go while driving.

The Insurance Corp. of B.C. says drivers are five times more likely to crash while operating a handheld device.

Which makes sense, I guess, when you think about it, since if you're not actually using the devices you've ham-fistedly tied to your steering wheel while driving, you're not actually distracted.
