Opposition Leader Bill Shorten has been caught texting while driving in Melbourne.
The Herald Sun has obtained a video of him clearly using his phone while driving along a road at 40 km per hour after dropping off his children at music.
Mr Shorten said in a statement he did not recall why he was using his phone but admitted he shouldn’t have been doing it.
“Like most drivers, I always try to do the right thing,” Mr Shorten said.
“But there’s no doubt that using your phone while driving is the wrong thing to do — there’s no excuse for it. I shouldn’t have done it and won’t do it again.”
