Troy Grant admits to using mobile phone while driving

The NSW Police Minister has apologised after he was caught illegally using a mobile phone to take photographs behind the wheel.

Dubbo MP Troy Grant took to Twitter to post a snap he took at a road works site of a sheep riding inside a car boot. The image was then passed onto his office.

The ex-police inspector has admitted to breaking the law and asked police to slap him with an infringement notice, reports Daily Telegraph.

The former deputy premier faces a $325 fine and four demerit points, in what serves as the latest in a spate of driving offences by NSW politicians.

It was recently revealed newly appointed tourism minister Adam Marshall has 17 speeding offences, including several speeding offences and a drink-driving charge.

The image was accompanied by the text: ‘Heading home on the Newell stopped at upgrade works and then saw this. A ewe in the back out on a Saturday drive!’.

‘Sitting stationary with the engine off at a road works site is no excuse to use a mobile phone,’ Police Minister Troy Grant told Daily Mail Australia.

‘As Police Minister I work hard to promote road safety and work with the police to campaign for better driver behaviour, including most recently for the launch of Operation Westforce.’

‘I’ve contacted the NSW Police to issue me with any appropriate infringement notice, and I hope my experience can serve as a reminder to others.’
