Halton Regional Police actually used the hashtag #FlutesAndDrivingDontMix
Well, this Ontario driver was certainly in treble (ahem, trouble.)
Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS) said one of their traffic officers was keeping an eye out for distracted drivers in Burlington on October 20 when they pulled over a driver expecting him to be on his cell phone.
Traffic officer was conducting distracted driver enforcement today and was expecting a cell phone from this driver. A little surprised to find the driver playing his flute with both hands and following along to an IPod while driving!Charged!!#FlutesAndDrivingDontMix ^mbpic.twitter.com/qQJntk6T1K— HRPS Burlington (@HRPS Burlington) 1634760267
The officer was "a little surprised" to see that the driver was playing the flute with both of his hands instead.
HRPS added that the driver was following along to a song on his iPod, too. Narcity reached out to ask which song the driver was playing along to but did not hear back from Halton Regional Police before this article went to press.
Police added that the driver was charged.
