CerealYes, the photo is real, the driver moving quickly down the M25, which circles London, and yes, he appears to be eating cereal, using both hands. As Ted Thornill of the Metro free newspaper (available in 16 British cities) wrote, “He clearly doesn’t care much for the Highway Code. It firmly states that you should ‘avoid distractions when driving’ such as ‘eating and drinking.’ Even a police officer full of the milk of human kindness would take a very dim view of this trucker’s breakfast-based antics.”

At least, it looks like, the driver’s forearm remained on the wheel if not his hand. And thankfully, no one does anything like this in the U.S., right? Right?
