UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak Fined For Seatbelt Violation

Although Prime Minister, he did not benefit from any leniency. Rishi Sunak was fined for not wearing his seatbelt in a car while filming a video that went viral on social media on Thursday.

According to the BBC, a government spokesman said Rishi Sunak “fully acknowledges that this was a mistake and has apologized”, adding that he will pay the fine. Lancashire Police also published a tweet on Friday evening implying this sanction.

“Following the release of a video on social media showing an individual not wearing his seatbelt, while being a passenger in a moving car in Lancashire, we have today released a 42-year-old man years from London a conditional offer of a lump sum sentence,” the post read.

This is the second time that Rishi Sunak has been fined while in government. He received one last April, as did Boris Johnson, for breaking lockdown rules by attending a then Prime Minister’s birthday meeting in Downing Street in June 2020.
