A mystery cyclist in Aberdeen has "named and shamed" a motorist caught driving while using a mobile phone, laptop and head phones.
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.
The Christmas and New Year holiday season will see drivers stopped by police and tested for drugs by the side of the road in a war on drug-driving.
The Telegraph has reported that the Home Office approved roadside testing kits that will analyse samples of saliva instantly to detect illegal substances as well as so-called "legal highs".
It said that police officers will also use the kits to catch drivers who have taken prescription medicines like strong painkillers, sleeping pills and drugs to treat anxiety, that can hinder concentration on the road.
It has been reported that ministers will order police to carry the "drugalyser" kits alongside conventional "breathalysers", which test motorists for alcohol consumption.
A spokesman for the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency has said that changes to the rules of tax discs will not affect the agency's ability to enforce the law:
There is absolutely no basis to these figures and it is nonsense to suggest that getting rid of the tax disc will lead to an increase in vehicle tax evasion.
We have a proven track record in making vehicle tax easy to pay but hard to avoid, with over 99% of all vehicles taxed. Given the systems now in place we take enforcement action direct from our electronic records rather than requiring a tax disc.
