Victoria police are reminding motorists to use better judgement after handing a driver more than $500 in fines for surfing social media while driving on the weekend.
Officers on routine patrol Saturday night saw the glow of an electronic device from a vehicle stopped at a red light.
After pulling up to the vehicle, one of the officers tapped on the window and noticed the driver was on a popular social media site.
The offending motorist received his third ticket in three years for using an electronic device while driving.
Police also gave the driver a ticket for not wearing a seatbelt.
