A driver has been recorded crashing into another car, minutes after angrily telling a cyclist he was safe using his phone behind the wheel.
“Can you drive safely with your mobile phone?” asks the cyclist who shot this footage. “Yes, I can,” replies the driver. After the duo get into the argument, the driver rear ends the car in front of his in traffic.
The cyclist told The Scotsman: “I was surprised to see this driver on his mobile phone, especially as he was looking down at it whilst driving. I called over to encourage him to stop using it, as it is not safe to drive whilst look at a phone.
“He later started talking to me, and during that conversation claimed he could drive safely when using his mobile phone, which is an astonishing admission.
