ANNFIELD PLAIN, England, March 2 (UPI) — A British man is losing his driving privileges for six months after he was caught walking his dog from the driver’s seat of his car.

Police in Annfield Plain, England, said Paul Railton, 23, was driving along the street at 5 mph with his dog attached to a leash dangling out the window of his vehicle, The Sun reported Tuesday.

Railton appeared before a justice of the peace and admitted to a charge of not being in proper control of a vehicle. He was issued three points on his license, bringing his point total to 12 and resulting in a loss of driving privileges for six months. He was also fined $99.

“A lot of people exercise their dogs in that manner,” Railton said. “It’s a joke. I’m not bothered. I knew I’d get three points. I might save myself some money not having a car.”

Dude, you might save yourself even more money by getting a brain transplant! Actually, if it was a seldom-traveled road & he was keeping tabs on how the dog was doing, AND if he had a medical situation preventing him from giving the dog a proper walk, I'd say it called for him getting a warning, but the story makes it sound like those circumstances weren't present. Just have to wonder about some people…
