Trouble with seatbelts?
A 68-year-old Sydney woman received a fine for altering her seatbelt after her breast cancer operation.
Lin Riley claims she was pulled over for a Random Breath Test on Oxford Street in Sydney, when a police officer spotted a bulldog clip at the retractor on her seatbelt above her right shoulder, News Corp reports.
Ms Riley said she uses it to ease discomfort to the left-hand side of her chest while she's behind the wheel.
The 68-year-old was reportedly diagnosed with cancer three years ago. Following a mastectomy and implant surgery, one of her implants ruptured, which led to lymphedema.
"It just lifts the belt away from my chest just a small amount so it doesn’t go tight across my left side and cause me pain," Ms Riley told News Corp.
It's a breach of the law and Ms Riley was fined $360. You can read the whole story here.
If you have trouble with seatbelts following treatment, please talk to your doctor. You may be able to make modifications to a seatbelt or be exempt from wearing it if you have a medical certificate.
