We have another curiosity out of London where police arrested Michael Mancini, 39, for blowing his nose in his van while it was stopped at a traffic light. The police officer insisted that he was not in control of his vehicle.
Mancini completed his nose blowing and put away his handkerchief when he was pulled over. He was given a £60 fixed penalty and given three points on his driving license.
In the United States, blowing your news can get you a virtual standing ovation, <a href="“>here.
In England, they appear particularly sensitive to nose blowing infractions. Not only ago they fined a woman when she blew her nose and the tissue blew away in strong winds, here.
It appears that if you need to blow your nose, you need to pull to the side of the road (preferably in a garage), turn the vehicle off and remove the keys, and — with the windows completely closed to avoid sudden gusts of wind — blow your nose. You must then place the tissue into a proper bag which should be deposited in a biohazard or appropriate location.
