You could get a £5,000 fine for singing to Christmas music in your car


Christmas is just around the corner.

It’s a great way to get into the Christmas spirit than to belt out old Christmas songs.

Exercise your pipes to spread some festive cheer.

However, driving home for Christmas could potentially land you with a whopping £5,000 fine if you are belting out holiday season hits.

It is tempting to turn the volume up to your favorite track and sing along to it.

Some people could be a little too excited about this.

If you are caught driving without due diligence, a heavy fine might be the best present for Christmas this year.

This is enough to make any person a scrooge!

A £5,000 fine could be given to drivers who blast loud music or sing and dance while on the road – which could be classed as “careless” driving.

Your Christmas show on wheels will see you get nine points on your licence and then a £5,000 fine if you are involved in an accident.

Experts have also stated that driving without due care and attention could lead to prosecution if dashcam footage is captured of you having a boogie before an accident.

If you don’t want to be faced with points and fines then maybe you need to stay away from some of the big tunes.

Shakin’ Stevens iconic festive hit, Merry Christmas Everyone, has taken the throne as the most distracting Christmas tune to dance to whilst driving.

In at number two, cheery Spanish hit Feliz Navidad by José Feliciano at 76% for the most distracting.

A recent song however has risen to third place as the most distracting while driving song.

Liam Gallagher’s 2020 song All You’re Dreaming Of racked up a distraction score of 70%.

Be assured, there are Christmas tunes that can be less distracting.

For a smooth drive, Nat King Cole’s All I Want For Christmas sits at the top of list for least distracting.

Whilst other classics, Baby It’s Cold Outside by Ella Fitzgerald secured second place and Bing Crosby’s Little Drummer Boy came in at third.

Maybe let’s just leave the rocking for around the Christmas tree!
