Man City Star Haaland Caught Using Phone While Driving His ₦600m Rolls-Royce Cullinan, Faces £200 Fine
Man City Star Erling Haaland caught using phone while driving his ₦600 Million Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV.
In the UK, drivers caught using mobile phones at the wheel face £200 fine and six points on a driving license.
Manchester City striker Erling Haaland has been caught using his mobile phone while driving his luxury Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV worth ₦600 Million on a road close to the Etihad Stadium.
In a series of photographs published by The Sun, the 22 year old Norwegian forward appear to be holding a smartphone with one hand and the wheels with the other.
Haaland was seen holding a phone while behind the wheels of his white Rolls-Royce Cullinan a day after scoring five goals for City against RB Leipzig earlier this month.
In the UK, drivers caught using mobile phones at the wheel face severe punishments, including a £200 fine and six points on a driving license.
The laws around the use of mobile phones while driving was toughened up in March 2022, with former Transport Secretary Grant Shapps Grant Schapps explaining he would take a ‘zero-tolerance’ policy on similar incidents.
“I will do everything in my power to keep road users safe, which is why I am taking a zero-tolerance approach to those who decide to risk lives by using their phone behind the wheel,” he said.
Road safety groups also criticised £375,000-a-week Haaland, who has bagged 42 goals in 37 games since joining the Sky Blues.
An AA spokesman said:
“It’s a straight red with no excuses.
“Holding your phone while driving is dangerous. For someone so effective at scoring, this is definitely an own goal.”
