Unbelted driver gives middle finger, unaware that he's gesturing to police

Man is caught using his phone while driving, and proceeds to gesture with his middle finger. What he doesn't know is that the person filming him is a police officer.

A van driver without a seatbelt takes one hand off the wheel and both eyes off the road to use a mobile phone while driving along a busy British motorway.

But what he doesn’t realise is the vehicle alongside him is a National Highways unmarked ‘supercab’ – and there are two police officers inside. When he sees he’s being filmed, he makes a rude gesture.

The driver was issued with a fixed penalty notice for not wearing a seatbelt and using a mobile phone. He was handed six penalty points and a £200 fine.(Video has no sound)
