Man Loses License After Using Two Cell Phones While Driving

Texting and driving may earn you a stiff fine, but driving while texting on one phone and talking on a second will earn you one year of riding your bike everywhere. Just ask David Secker of the UK.

Mr. Secker was allegedly driving 70MPH in his Vauxhall Tigra when he was stopped by police. Police claim he was talking on one phone, texting on another and steering with his knees. After pulling over, he allegedly finished his phone call before addressing the police, a bonehead move that likely irritated the attending officers.

Secker didn't fare so well in court, either. His license was suspended for a year. He was fined £150 ($245) and had 14 penalty points levied against his license. [BBC]
