A motorist has issued an urgent warning to drivers after they were hit with more than $10,000 in fines for flouting a simple driving rule that almost every Aussie breaks.
The Queenslander took to Reddit to rant on Monday after discovering they had racked up thousands of dollars in eye-watering fines.
‘Don’t put your phone on your lap while driving ($10,000 mistake),’ they captioned the post which they started by saying they were an ’emotional mess’.
‘I got an infringement notice reminder in my email,’ the driver wrote.
‘I looked into it and discovered nine infringement notices in the system for “use mobile phone/resting on body while driving”.
