A WOMAN has been filmed “eating a pasta salad with a fork” while joining a busy motorway and then driving at speeds of up to 50mph.

Dad-of-one Mariusz Kedzior, 44, was driving with his friend David Gibek on the M60 near Manchester Airport when they spotted the woman join the motorway at Junction 15.

The female driver of the red Ford Fiesta was filmed on his dashcam joining the motorway at around 50mph.

In disbelief at what they had just seen, Mariusz passed the car again so that David could take pictures from the passenger side.

Mariusz claims the woman can be clearly seen forking in mouthfuls of food with her right hand while holding the bowl of pasta salad in her left, barely in control of the wheel.

In other pictures, she switches the food to her right hand while she attempts to manoeuvre the vehicle one-handed – visibly swaying in the lane in the dashcam footage.

Mariusz, from Crewe, Cheshire, said: "As a lorry driver, I have 11 years' experience of driving on the road and I have never seen anything like this.

"Both me and David were completely shocked by what we saw at first and couldn't quite believe it. That was why we just had to take pictures of what she was doing.

"David started taking pictures as we drove alongside her and he was doing it for a while but she was so busy eating she did not notice at all. She was simply too focused on her food.

"There were lots of cars and HGVs around so the road was far from empty but thankfully it was not rush hour.

“I think it is a very dangerous thing to do while driving."

The footage, recorded around midday on March 15, shows the woman driving at speeds varying from 42mph up to 50mph.

David, a 39-year-old computer technician, said: "It was so crazy. I think it is very dangerous for all road users who were around as she did it.

"We were quite angry at what we saw and very shocked. I'm not sure how she thought doing that was OK."
