Picture of daughter and father shows the pair breaking four road rules – so can you spot them?

Simple picture of father and daughter on a road trip shows the pair breaking four rules that could cost them $1,958 in fines – so can you spot what they’ve done wrong?

  • Australian insurance company posts image asking users to spot broken rules
  • Royal Automobile Club of Queensland asked followers to find four illegalities
  • Many users said they could see more than four – people arguing as many as six

An Australian insurance company has posted an image asking the public to spot the four laws being broken – sparking an intense online debate.

The Royal Automobile Club of Queensland published the image on their Facebook page requesting followers identify the four road rules not being adhered to – with many suggesting there were more.

The picture shows a young woman driving an older man with their dog seated in the back. 

Can you spot the four road rules being broken in this image?

Most people identified the obvious four laws being broken and correctly commented on the post – but there was disagreement over the number of illegalities. 

Several users said there were five or even six road rules in dispute, noting the rear vision mirror was not correctly placed and the young woman’s thumbs being tucked under the steering wheel.

One user said the fifth broken rule was the older man wearing ‘two-tone pants’ while another said it was a ‘Taylor Swift CD playing’.

‘Taylor swift cd playing, passenger hasn’t got a traveller, dog needs water, air con on low. girl hasn’t answered text message. and she has a tie Tok notification. whew, that was hard,’ one person observed.

‘Someone is on their bonnet taking photos. Very dangerous,’ another said.

The RACQ confirmed the four laws being broken in the photo and the fines associated

The RACQ confirmed the four laws being broken in the photo and the fines associated

The RACQ confirmed the four laws being broken in the photo despite the suggestions of many followers.

The rules are: dog is unrestrained in the back seat, woman has her phone on her lap, man doesn’t have his seat belt on properly and the driver’s view through the back of the car is restricted by excess luggage.

In Queensland the woman would see a $1,000 fine and four demerit points for having her phone on her lap while the unrestrained dog would see a $247 fine.

For the passenger not correctly wearing his seat belt the woman would cop another $400 fine and three demerit points, with a $311 fine for the restricted view through the car.
