The Queen of England reported to Police for not wearing a seat-belt

The Queen of England on Wednesday reported to West Yorkshire Police for not wearing a seat-belt as she travelled to the State Opening of Parliament. 

In our part of the world, this may sound abnormal and ridiculous of a serving senior citizen to be summoned by the law enforcement agency for not wearing 'ordinary' seat-belt. 

But in England, it is normal because the law is made for everyone, regardless of status and class.

According to the Authorities, they received a 999 call from someone saying the Queen was not wearing a seat belt as she travelled with Prince Charles through London from Buckingham Palace to Westminster.

Confirming the call in a tweet, it was indicated that the call was not an emergency and shouldn't have been made to 999. 

"999 call received reporting that the Queen isn't wearing a seat-belt. #not999 #notevenwestyorkshire," the tweet read. 

Under UK law, civil and criminal proceedings cannot be taken against the Queen, but under the Queen and law section of the Royal Family's website, it states: "The Queen is careful to ensure that all her activities in her personal capacities are carried out in strict accordance with the law."
