A FEMALE driver has been caught applying make up at 30mph and with no hands on the wheel – on one of the UK’s busiest motorways.
The woman, who was photographed on the M6 Toll on Wednesday, does not even appear to be wearing a seatbelt as she looks in her visor mirror
The photo was captured by Adam J Daniels Faulkner, who was a passenger in a van in the next lane.
Adam, 33, from Manchester, even rolled his window down to get a clear snap, uploading the image on Wednesday morning with the caption: “Why do women think it’s ok to do make up at the wheel? On the M6 toll no less haha.”
He said: “The only reason I took the picture was because of the speed we were doing.
“If you can see the back wheel and the floor, it’s quite blurry.”
Online, Chris Doe responded: “Gotta look good for the paramedic after her face has hit the windscreen.”
Kerri Louise Thompson wrote: “This winds me up so much! As a woman, I think it’s absolutely unnecessary. Get up 10 minutes earlier and do it before you leave!”
Graham Tinkler said: “Maybe she’s practising how to do it for when she isn’t paying attention and piles into the back of a stationary lorry!”
Suze Barton said: “This is an instance where if you see them putting mascara on in your rear view mirror you tap your brakes lightly and she hits hers and the wand goes in their eye…not that I’d do this of course.”
Denise Keithler wrote: “Guilty as charged!”
Adrian Jensen said: “Because girls drive better – they say.”
Some users think they had spotted further issues with the woman’s actions.
Fiona Stevens said: “Is she not wearing a seatbelt?”
Samantha Gazzard agreed: “Oh yeah. Tut tut.”
Earlier this year, a woman was caught applying makeup while driving in Bournemouth as her child was in the back seat.
