Man Travelled 100 Miles 'For A McDonald's' Despite Town Not Having One

A man has been fined for breaking coronavirus rules after driving 100 miles 'to visit a McDonald's' despite the town he was in not having one.

The 34-year-old - who had already received a warning - travelled from Luton to Devizes on Thursday evening (14 January).

Wiltshire Police reported that the distance travelled across numerous counties to Devizes, which doesn't have a McDonald's restaurant, is a flagrant breach of the regulations currently in place.

After he was stopped, the man was handed a £200 fixed penalty notice was issued as well as the vehicle being seized for no insurance. That's an expensive Big Mac.

In the press release, Wiltshire police wrote: "We encourage the public to make sure they are up to date with the most recent government guidance by visiting www.gov.uk/coronavirus to ensure you understand the rules clearly and what they will mean for you.

"The majority of people across Wiltshire continue to act responsibly and we thank you for that, however, it is important to protect the NHS that we all stick to the rules.

"If you have concerns about someone potentially breaching the Government's restrictions we would urge you to report this online via the Report section of our website to help keep our phone lines free for other police matters."

McDonald's Addicted Man Has Eaten A Burger Every Other Day For Over Two Decades

published at10 days ago

This isn't the first person to be stopped for trying to get a burger. Just days ago North Yorkshire Police issued a fine to a woman who drove from Lincolnshire to meet her sister in Scarborough. The only difference is that Scarborough does have one.

Chief Inspector Rachel Wood criticised the woman for her cross-country Maccies mission.

She said: "Driving through three counties to get a burger is not classed as essential travel. So the woman, who is in her 30s, received a fixed penalty notice from North Yorkshire Police.

"Most people in North Yorkshire are trying really hard to stop the spread of Covid in our communities and protect the vulnerable.

"When this pandemic is over, we know everyone's looking forward to going where they want, when they want. But in the meantime, I'd like to say thank you to everyone who continues to stay home, protect the NHS and save lives."
