TOURS - French police said Monday they had caught a man driving on a motorway at 200 kilometres an hour while watching a video.
The 21-year-old was watching the video on a mobile viewer placed on the dashboard of his vehicle when police stopped him Sunday on the highway near the western city of Tours, police said.
The driver, who comes from the Paris region, obtained his licence less than three years ago and thus under French legislation was not permitted to drive faster than 110 kilometres an hour.
Police impounded his car and confiscated his licence while he awaits a court appearance.
