Bike selfie prompts New Zealand police investigation

Drops Case0 Comments

New Zealand police say Hamilton will not be charged after he posts two Snapchat videos of himself while riding a Harley Davidson. In one clip, Hamilton appears to be driving on a busy highway while filming over his shoulder. It is illegal to use a mobile phone while driving in New Zealand. Police:

The video footage available does not provide us with sufficient enough evidence that an offence has occurred. We would like to reiterate our earlier statements that police take the issue of mobile phone use whilst driving or riding very seriously. It is a significant distraction and a major risk to all road users.
