At first it appears the driver is just using his mobile while cruising along the road, but when the cyclist catches we see he also has a tablet PC playing a video lodged between the gear stick and the dashboard, with headphones plugged in.

The cyclist, who documents bad driving on his YouTube channel, says the motorist was driving in rush hour traffic on one of the city's main thoroughfares.

The policing minister has said new plans to test drivers for drugs will "drive this menace off the road".

This is something that has plagued society for far too long.

People will have exactly the same view of drug-driving as they do of drink-driving: it is an abhorrent thing to do.

Not only do you put your own life at risk, but you put innocent people's lives at risk.

We will drive this menace off the road.

– Policing minister Mike Penning
