Safe driving campaign catches out staffer

A campaign by Auckland Transport to curb the use of mobile phones while driving has caught out one of its own staff members.

A bus passenger spotted the parking officer using a mobile phone in his lap while driving a marked agency car in the inner city.

Auckland Transport said it had told the worker that the behaviour was not acceptable.

The campaign under the slogan "Oi!" encourages people to reprimand drivers near them when spotted on the phone.
