Rishi Sunak fined for messing with Instagram with car: PM didn't buckle up

UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has been fined for not wearing his seat belt while driving. The prime minister “lit up” while shooting a video on social networks.

Sunak posted a video on Instagram, in which he is driving in a car, but without a seat belt. At the time of filming the video, the prime minister was in Lancashire on a trip to northern England.

Police fine the prime minister: Sunak's reaction

In Britain passengers caught not wearing their seat belt are fined £100. Lancashire police said they had given the 42-year-old premier a conditional sentence of a fixed sentence. Sunak fully admitted that it “was a mistake” and apologized, adding that he would pay the fine.

If the case goes to trial, the fine could rise to £500.

This is Sunak's second fine while serving in the government.

This is the second time Mr. Sunak has received a fixed fine notice while serving in the government.

Last April, he was fined along with Boris Johnson and his wife Kerry for violating COVID-19 quarantine rules while partying on Downing Street in June 2020.
