Police are investigating Haaland after he was photographed using his smartphone while driving
Police are looking into ERLING Haaland after he was photographed using his smartphone while driving.
The Man City striker, 22, was spotted driving his £300,000 Rolls-Royce on March 15, according to The Sun.
He could now lose his license.
Norwegian Haaland was driving the vehicle on a dual carriageway near Manchester’s Etihad Stadium in New Islington.
It was the day after he scored five goals for Manchester City in a 7-0 Champions League victory over RB Leipzig.
“GMP is aware of the image and is investigating,” said Greater Manchester Police.
Anyone caught using a phone while driving faces six penalty points and a £200 fine.
A driver may also be taken to court and fined up to £1,000 for his or her actions.
The driver’s license may be revoked if they passed their test within the last two years.
It has been illegal to use a cellphone while driving since 2003, but regulations have been tightened since then.
You are not permitted to use your phone in your car, including reading texts, checking social media, or taking photos.
From March 25, 2022, any form of touching your phone is illegal and punishable.
The law applies even if you are stopped at a stop sign or in traffic because your engine is still running.
