The British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has apologized for his lapse in judgment by riding in a car without wearing a seat belt to film a short video for social media, a Downing Street spokesman said today.
The video, in which Sunak talks about the government’s latest round of funding aimed at improving communities across the country, was widely shared on social media as the British prime minister addressed the camera from the back of a car without wearing a seatbelt. .
“That was a brief error of judgement. The Prime Minister took off his seat belt to film a short video,” a Downing Street spokesman told reporters.
“He fully accepts it was a mistake and apologises.”
In Britain, a person can be fined up to £500 for not wearing a seat belt, unless there is an exception, such as for the emergency services, in a taxi or when a driver reverses.
Asked if Sunak had any exemption while riding in a government car, the spokesman told reporters: “It was wrong and he apologized.”
