Driver to fight fine 'for blowing his nose'


A man says he will fight a fine given to him by the police for blowing his nose while driving.

Michael Mancini said he was sitting in stationary traffic in Ayr, with the handbrake on, when he used a tissue to clean his nose.

A police officer issued Mr Mancini with a fixed penalty for not being in proper control of his car.

He has refused to pay the £60 fine and the case may now proceed to court.

Mr Mancini spoke to BBC Breakfast about what happened.
