Anyone who sneezed while driving could easily achieve that: is that driving without due care and attention? I think not.
For this she will receive three points on her licence and have to pay £60. Is it any wonder the transport police have so little respect from the general public?

I drive on the A14 to work every day and, if you want to see driving without due care and attention, that's the place to see it - no wonder there are so many accidents, and where are the police then? Probably sitting behind a desk with camera footage trying to work out who they can sting to add a few extra pounds to their coffers.
