Ban for ‘doing dentistry’ while driving

A truck driver is facing a careless driving charge for trying to pull out his tooth while driving.

Police in Toronto, Canada, stopped the driver who was driving ‘all over the road’.

They discovered the 58-year-old lorry driver was driving so poorly because he was trying to pull out a tooth while on the road.

He had rigged a string around his hurting tooth and then tied the other end to the roof of the cab, police said.

When the driver was stopped, the officer found a bloody tooth and a string lying next to him.

The man is charged with careless driving.
