Uber driver caught watching porn while parked on shoulder of freeway

An Uber driver was caught watching porn on his phone while parked on the hard shoulder of a major freeway in Manchester, England.

Shocked highway police found the vehicle on the east-bound Manchester Airport spur and saw the driver inside was 'watching pornographic material on their mobile phone' on Sunday night (local time).

The driver was given a Traffic Offence Report (TOR) which could result in a fine, according to Kent Online.

North West Motorway Police, who posted details of the incident on their Facebook page, said they will also be reported to the Manchester Taxi Licencing department because the driver was not wearing an ID badge at the time.

Sharing a photo of the car, they wrote: "Manchester licensed private hire under Uber banner, driver parked on hard shoulder of EB M56 airport spur watching pornographic material on mobile phone.

"Driver issued a TOR for h/s offences and reported to Manchester Taxi Licencing for offences including not wearing ID badge."

The post has been shared nearly 500 times.
