Andy, who caught the driver, tells Ben Fordham “it’s absolutely ludicrous”.

“This person needs their licence cut up straight away.”

He tells Ben he’s sure there was a baby in the back seat.

Chief Inspector Phil Brooks from the NSW Highway Patrol Command tells Ben the offence carries a fine of $337 as well as a penalty of five demerit points.

“Last year 42,000 tickets were issued for people using their phones.

“Out of that, nearly 400 for people using video display units whilst driving.”
