Two lorry drivers were stopped and fined for using laptop computers while driving within the space of an hour on the M2.
Kent Police's Roads Policing Unit stopped the first lorry at around 1.15pm yesterday after it was spotted driving coastbound on the M2 between Junction 4 near Chatham and Junction 5 near Stockbury.
Shortly after, at approximately 1.50pm, another HGV driver was stopped in the same location for the same offence.
Both drivers were issued with a £200 graduated fixed penalty notice and six penalty points.
The police roads unit tweeted a picture of the first lorry driver's cab, adding: "HGV1 stopped for using his laptop whilst driving. Not only dangerous for not paying attention where he was pointing his 40 ton artic but just look at vision out the window. Driver fined and points issued #commercialvehunit SB."
And after the second driver was caught they added: "Straight back out on the road to find another HGV1 driver doing exactly the same thing. Unbelievable... Fined #commercialvehunit SB".
