Top Gear-Jeremy Clarson Drive on Mobile

There has never been such a fuss over driving and talking on the phone as the recent incident involving poor Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson. Allegedly, Jeremy was caught on a mobile camera being on his mobile phone while driving. Apparently the incident took place in Oxfordshire, where he lives. The BBC broadcaster was driving a rare 1970s 6.3-litre green, left-hand drive V8 600 Grosser Mercedes on 70mph on the M40.

Adam Blake, 22, and Hayley Byford, 21, reported to Mirror newspaper they say Mr. Clarkson on the phone will overtaking them in his car. "We could not believe that we'd caught him out." Mr. Blake's girlfriend was the one who noticed the incident and took the picture with her mobile, quite conveniently as the car Jeremy Clarkson was supposed to be driving was a left-hand drive.

Jeremy Clarkson denied his involvement in the incident, while a Top Gear spokesperson refused to comment, dealing with the matter as external to BBC. Drivers caught using mobiles while driving face three points on their licence and a £60 fine. I can see though, how focused on the street would be an inexperienced 22 year old driver, when his girlfriend goes hysterical looking for her mobile phone trying to take a picture of a 48 year old famous presenter - one the most experienced drivers in the world - who is overtaking them on 70mph.
Don't you guys have anything better to do while driving?
