Valentine's Day warning to drivers as 'cute date night' could see you hit with £2.5k fine & driving ban | The Sun
DRIVERS have been warned that a "cute date night" on Valentines Day could risk a £2,500 fine.
Videos of date nights in cars have been viewed a billion times on TikTok – influencing many others to do the same.
But if you’re tempted to snuggle down for the night in your car, you must know the rules.
Wild camping isn't legally permitted in most parts of England and Wales without the express approval of the landowner.
This applies to tents, RVs, cars, or any other form of temporary accommodation.
But you'll likely be asked to move along – rather than be slapped with a fine, The Liverpool Echo reports.

This can result in a £2,500 fine and a possible driving ban.
Plus, up to three months imprisonment.

And drivers that simply stand next to their car under the influence of alcohol can also be hit with the same fine.
If you have consumed more than the legal alcohol limit, you shouldn't even touch your car.
Under English law, it is possible to be charged with drunk driving without being behind the wheel.
