For more than 30 seconds the woman can be seen driving without touching the wheel, and the incident has been reported to police.

The video, which has been shared more than 700 times, has enraged online commenters who were shocked the woman would drive children with both hands on her phone instead of the wheel.

Ashaleigh Grace posted the video on Facebook and said the woman was an example of "what not to do" when driving with children in the car.

"This woman needs to be reported and her drivers licence taken off her! Yes, this has been reported," she said on Facebook.
