A taxi driver has been caught by police driving while using a phone to FaceTime his family.
Derbyshire police officers spotted the man driving his cab near Willington. When officers pulled the car over last month, they found that the man’s phone call log showed he had been driving while using FaceTime - a video calling app.
Police said that, when they stopped the man, he claimed he was only turning his phone off at the time. Officers went on to Tweet about the incident and even uploaded a video and picture. They said: “Private hire driver having a family catch up on FaceTime whilst driving. Tried to say he was just turning the phone off. His call records say otherwise.”
A police spokesman told the Burton Mail that the private hire driver was issued with a fine and has been reported to courts.
