Wow, he really likes Bear McCreary

"LONDON (AP) -- A court has suspended the license of a truck driver who careened down a highway while watching episodes of Battlestar Galactica on a laptop computer atop his dashboard.

"Police say Benjamin Trotman drove for 25 miles (40 kilometers) in northern England last December with one eye on the cult sci-fi show. A traffic officer who pulled him over found the show still playing on his computer.

"Trotman's lawyer claimed he had been looking at Google Maps while listening to the sound from the show. But Trotman pleaded guilty to dangerous driving at an earlier hearing.

"On Friday, a justice of the peace banned him from driving for 15 months. He also was sentenced to 225 hours of community service and ordered to pay $970 in costs."
