A bus driver is supposed to pay € 180 because, according to the judgment, he used his cell phone while driving. The court did not believe the version he used only for his hairbrush. Especially since there are pictures.
eThe bus driver failed in court by attempting to portray the cell phone violation while driving as innocuous grooming of the beard. The judges assessed the man’s statement that the mobile phone was in fact a hairbrush as “a precautionary claim.” As announced by the Frankfurt District Court on Monday, the man was fined 180 euros (971 Owi 363 Js 72112/19).
The police took a picture of the bus driver while he was on the phone while driving. However, the 31-year-old claimed at the main session last summer that he had combed his beard with only a hairbrush. The brush shown in the court was curved, unlike the device in the photos.
What pictures do not show
The recordings also showed that he was holding the device near his ear. “The combing process that definitely requires the comb down and / or to the side cannot be seen in the photos,” the court justified its decision.
According to the local court, the decision of June 16, 2020 is not yet legally binding.
