A stack of McDonald's hotcakes cost a Brisbane driver more than $250 after he was sprung by police eating behind the wheel at a northwest intersection on Wednesday.
The 25-year-old was charged with Failing to have Proper Control of a Motor Vehicle.
He was spotted without a hand on the wheel around 11.30am.
Albany Creek Police officer-in-charge Mat Kelly said the incident was "very unusual".
He said any driver who flouted the road rules would face hefty fines.
"This man was stopped right beside the police (car)," he said.
"Drivers must have at least one hand on the steering wheel at all times."
