Sydney Man Caught 'Sniffing A Substance' While Driving On Motorway
A Sydney driver has been allegedly caught doing something that certainly doesn't look like driving.
A 21-year-old motorist behind the wheel of a Hyundai i30 sedan has been accused of snorting a powdered substance from a phone while the car was travelling down the M4 at Wentworthville just before midnight on 14 August.
The photo, snapped by a mobile detection camera, shows a man with his head lowered and what appears to be something in his nose, while the passenger takes control of the car.
The man has been issued a court attendance notice for driving without proper control of vehicle, negligent driving, and driver using a mobile phone when not permitted.

The issue has been referred to Strike Force Puma within the Traffic and Highway Patrol Command for further investigation.
NSW Police have released a statement, saying: "Police will allege in court that the man was sniffing a substance off his mobile phone while driving and did not have his hands on the steering wheel while the vehicle was in motion."
