Driving laws you didn’t know you were breaking with motorists at risk of heavy fines

Motorists were least aware of the dangers of fitting a sat nav to the wrong part of the vehicle with just 15 percent admitting they understood this law. 

However, 57 percent of road users confirmed they had broken this before which could leave many motorists caught out. 

Placing a sat nav in the centre of the screen could distract motorists from road hazards which could put themselves or other road users at risk. 

This could result in a  fine of up to £2,500 for distracted driving although charges could rise in extreme cases. 

If police officers feel your driving has been affected by the loss of concentration they may be inclined to issue a dangerous driving charge.
