A DAD drove 350 miles with his kids in the car to get a KEBAB – then crashed on the way home.
The driver, who had no license or insurance, crashed on the M5 near Portishead, Bristol.
The man, with his wife and two kids in the car, told officers they had travelled from Exeter to Coventry to pick up a kebab, and were on their way home when the smash occurred.
Officers fined the motorist for various offences, including driving with no licence or insurance, and coronavirus breaches.
Avon and Somerset’s road policing unit tweeted: “RTC on the M5 at Portishead.
“The driver had no licence or insurance.
“He had his wife, and 2 young children in the vehicle.
“They were returning to Exeter from Coventry where they had travelled to buy a kebab…
“Driver reported for various offences including the #Covid breach.”
Twitter users have responded angrily to these latest Covid rule breakers.
One user tweeted: “Exeter – Coventry return to buy a kebab uninsured + unlicensed driver, sure went out of his way to provide for his family.
“Too many selfish unnecessary journeys happening nationwide adds to spread virus.
“Stay home essential travel only!
Another bluntly labelled the driver an “Idiot!!”
