Sydney motorist filmed using Facetime while slowly driving

  • A green P-plater has been filmed using Facetime while driving in Sydney
  • A truck driver named Shane caught the female driver on his dashcam
  • He was gobsmacked at what happened – but not everyone agrees with him

A green P-plater has been filmed for using her phone while driving to Facetime a friend.

Truck driver Shane filmed the whole thing on his dashcam and it was shared to social media by The Ray Hadley Morning Show.

The video shows a woman slowly driving while caught in bumper-to-bumper traffic in Sydney’s inner west.

A P-plater has been caught using her phone to Facetime while she drove in Sydney

Through her back windscreen you can see the motorist has her phone mounted to the car’s centre console.

On the phone’s screen you can see somebody moving about and Shane said that the driver is on Facetime.

Shane was shocked over the incident.

‘I think I have seen it all,’ he can be heard saying on the video.

‘Fair enough it is in the holster, but come on now. Is that really right?’

He also wondered why you would Facetime someone rather than call them.

Facebook users seemed divided over the issue.

Some people criticised Shane's actions, calling dashcam owners a 'self righteous bunch'

One wrote: ‘I bet this [truck driver] has committed many traffic offences over the years… as we all do on occasion. Dash cam owners seem quite the self righteous bunch…’

Another stood on Shane’s side: ‘They are nothing more than little princesses, the far quit generation, when a P-plater gets injured or dies it is one less I have to worry about.’

Others decided that this was an issue for nobody but the police who should pull over people that use their mobile phone while driving.
