Footage shows HGV driver on two phones while driving

HIGHWAYS England has released video footage showing an HGV driver on the motorway using two mobile phones while driving.

The driver of the truck didn’t realise that the lorry pulling up next to him had two police officers inside it with filming equipment fixed on his cabin.

The footage emerged the same week the UK government announced plans to help combat the HGV driver shortage by fast-tracking licence applications. Filmed from an unmarked Highways England HGV Cab, the footage shows the driver of the lorry seemingly speaking on two phones simultaneously while driving in the inside lane of the motorway.

As the undercover HGV cab pulls alongside the articulated truck, the driver notices the operative filming him and coyly drops the mobile phones down and continues on his way.
