SNOWDONIA tourists were slammed as “stupid” after footage emerged of them hanging out of a moving car for Snapchat selfies.
A pair of visitors at the beauty spot in North Wales were caught striking a pose on police dashcam.
Footage released by cops shows two of the visitors leaning out of the car window and holding up their phones to take a selfie in the rolling hills.
North Wales Police said the group received tickets once the car had stopped.
Asked by officers why they had been leaning out of the window, a member of the group said they had been “taking pics for Snapchat”.
North Wales Police Roads Policing Unit tweeted: "Perfect example of stupid behaviour… Captured whilst one of our unmarked bikes was on #OpDarwen patrol in Snowdonia last Sunday.
"Car stopped and tickets issued. Stern words were also given.
"Their excuse – 'taking pics for Snapchat."
The Welsh mountain is one of the country’s top tourist destinations and is popular because it can be walked on foot without specialist climbing gear.
