British police captured video of a lounging truck driver using his cellphone behind the wheel while resting one foot up on the dashboard.

Highways England posted a video to YouTube showing the driver on the M18 highway, near the M62 junction in the Goole area, with his right foot propped up on the dashboard.

The driver can be seen playing with his phone instead of keeping his eyes on the road.

Police shot the footage using an unmarked cab loaned to various departments around the country by Highways England to catch drivers in mid-violation.

It was unclear whether the driver was issued a fine or only a warning.
