NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

A man driving what appears to be a freight truck and wearing a U.S. Xpress uniform narrates his drive across the Twin Spans on camera.

The driver, who doesn't identify himself and appears to be the one holding the phone, responds to comments and shows different views as he navigates the center lane of the busy bridge headed to New Orleans. At one point he says he hopes the police don't see what he's doing. He also says he makes the trip about once a week.

The nearly 5-minute video was posted to LiveLeak under the headline "U.S. Xpress driver live streams on the job" followed by a warning about distracted driving.
