Driver plays with a RUBIK’S CUBE while speeding down a Spanish motorway at 79mph

  • Traffic chiefs in a helicopter filmed speeding driver on the motorway
  • The man is seen taking two hands off the wheel as he tries to match the colours 
  • He was driving at 79 miles an hour when he was caught
  • He’s thought to have been fined and had points taken off his licence

This is the astonishing moment traffic chiefs film a speeding driver trying to solve a Rubik’s cube on a Spanish motorway.

The driver, who has not been named, was on the A-49 motorway linking Seville and Huelva to the Portuguese Algarve. 

The man was videoed from a helicopter taking two hands off the wheel as he attempted to match up the colours on the famous 3-D puzzle.

He was driving at 79 miles an hour when he was caught red-handed, five miles an hour over the speed limit on the motorway in Spain where he was filmed in April this year.

He was nabbed by Pegasus, a helicopter belonging to Spain’s National Traffic Directorate and is thought to have been hit with a heavy fine as well as having three points taken off his licence.

Traffic chiefs published the footage this week as part of a campaign against distractions at the wheel, which they say are to blame for one out of every four accidents.

Last year in Spain 446 people died and 1,983 were injured after drivers became distracted at the wheel.

A spokesman for Spain’s National Traffic Directorate said in a message alongside the video: ‘Driving and doing a Rubik’s cube at the same time is not a very wise idea. One in four accidents are the results of distractions at the wheel. Use your head.’

This summer drones were used in Spain to help police target road offenders including motorists who were using mobile phones or not wearing seat belts.

Eleven drones were used to track drivers in one of the first projects of its kind in Europe.

One social media user said of the Rubik’s cube video: ‘I’d like to think that this type of madness would be severely punished.

‘A fine is not enough for scumbags like this. They should have their driving licence taken away from them for life and the Rubik’s cube shoved up their a**e.’

Another managed to inject some humour into the situation by adding: ‘I never managed to finish a single side in five years and I wasn’t driving at the time.’
