Canadian police say that they discovered a truck driver watching a TV show behind the wheel when they pulled the semi over for speeding.

On Tuesday, March 5, Ontario Provincial Police – North West Region (OPP) shared details about a recent commercial vehicle traffic stop that occurred on Highway 11/17 in Shuniah.

OPP’s Thunder Bay division pulled the truck over for speeding, but then discovered a slew of violations.

From OPP:

Members of the Thunder Bay OPP stopped this commercial motor vehicle for doing 119 km/h in a posted 90 km/h zone. But that’s not all – the driver was caught watching a movie on their phone while driving and is facing a line-up of charges including, speeding, drive commercial motor vehicle not equipped with speed limiting system, drive display screen visible to driver, exceeding 13 hours driving time in a day, and other log book infractions.
