Derbyshire Constabulary officials discovered a car pulling into one of the chain’s restaurants in Chesterfield on Monday January 11th.
Alarm bells started ringing when police saw that the Mercedes had a broken windshield and no wipers. Derby Telegraph report.
After speaking to the three men in the car, the officers found that they were from completely different parts of the country.
One of the men lived in Lancashire and two were from Leicestershire.
After discovering the men had made a non-essential trip, officials fined £ 200 each for violating Covid’s rules.
The added insult from the injury and the condition of the car meant the police couldn’t allow any further driving, which meant the men had to make alternative arrangements to get home.
In a tweet, the Derbyshire Roads Policing Unit joked that the men decided to go to McDonald’s to do some sports.
They said, “Chesterfield. Three friends visit the well-known McDonald’s practice site in Hornsbridge.
“Two from Leicestershire and one from Lancashire. Smashed windshield and no wipers.
“Excluded from further movements. Covid tickets. # PG9 #StayHome”
