The Reason Behind the Call

The reason cited by the man in the phone call is the violation of traffic and safety rule by the Queen. As the Queen traveled to Westminster this week for the State Opening of Parliament, the man noticed her seat belt as she rode in the rear of the car.

The man then decided that such an atrocious, public jeering of road safety regulations must not go unpunished, and hence dialed 999.

Then after, that call went through to the West Yorkshire Police Customer Contact Centre.

Response From the Police

Sadly, what the 999 operator told the caller, is unknown yet. Tom Donohoe of West Yorkshire Police construed,

“I cannot stress enough that the 999 number is for emergencies only.”

What Does The UK Law Say?

Under the UK law, it is compulsory to wear a seat belt if there’s one fitted. However, the Queen is immune from any civil or criminal proceedings.

A statement on the British Monarchy website says,

“The Queen is careful to ensure that all her activities in her personal capacity are carried out in strict accordance with the law.”
