A woman was caught on camera texting while driving with her feet.


It was a case of reckless driving so egregious Sarah and Shawn Delong had to record it.

"Someone is going to get killed, that's why I was so mad. You see people on their phones all the time, but that took the cake," Sarah told Action News Wednesday night.

From the passenger seat of their car, Sarah started recording on her phone.

The Delongs followed the woman's car for quite a while, and her distracted driving continued.

"For a good 20 minutes we were in her vicinity whether it was beside her or behind her," Sarah said.

A woman was captured on video texting with her hands and driving with her feet on the Schuykill Expressway.



Sarah and Shawn did try to get her to stop her dangerous activity.

"At one point we beeped at her and I yelled 'get off your phone!' And she looked and smirked at me and went right back to doing whatever it was on her phone," Sarah said.

"I've seen people reading and writing with their documents, but not driving with your feet!" Shawn said.

The Delongs say there were points where the woman was swerving.

"To see her on 76 and then going down towards Center City, that I couldn't believe," Shawn said.

Sarah tells us she did get the license plate number on the car and called police.

It is not known if this woman will face any consequences. Action News has reached out to the Pennsylvania State Police for a comment.

Incredibly, the video is not unique to our area.

Just last week, a Colorado woman was caught texting while speeding down the interstate with one leg propped up on the dashboard.



A worried passenger in the next car captured the 47 second clip and posted it to Facebook.

It has since been seen and shared thousands of times.

If identified, the driver could face a significant fine.
