The Tuscan has a story that I suppose most of you have seen. In short, pleasuring onesself on a long straight road, whilst filming it, is deemed dangerous driving, even by Australian standards.
I thought the judge was unnecessarily harsh on the poor, bored bastard. Given that she was going to bang him up for his drugs offences anyway, it was bad form to introduce the onanism angle.
The French, of course, take a different view of this, as this tale confirms:
A gendarme was strolling down the Champs-Élysées one balmy summer evening when he saw a man, partially obscured by a tree, apparently having a pee.
"Monsieur!" shouted the Frog plod, "défense de pisser ici. C'est interdit!"
"Je pisse pas" said the man over his shoulder, "je m'abuse"
"Pardon Monsieur!" said the gendarme hurriedly, "vive le sport!"
