She would have reported the female driver to the police before uploading the video to social media.
The video has since been viewed 110,000 times and shared 843 times and more than a hundred angry social media users have responded.
& # 39; Once? I see this more and more every day while living on the roads, it's pretty scary to see, & wrote a Facebook user.
& # 39; The dangers are not only clear to her family, but also to others, & # 39; another added.
One user even tagged the Queensland Police Service in the post.
Daily Mail Australia contacted the Queensland police who could not confirm whether they had received a report of the incident.
The current penalty in Queensland for driving while using your cell phone is a maximum fine of $ 400 and three points.
Inattention also accounted for five percent of all road deaths in 2019 according to data released by leading insurance company Budget Direct.
The same research also showed that drivers who were distracted by their mobile phones while driving were four times more likely to crash.
To date, there have been 122 deaths on the roads of Queensland in 2019 from a total of 111 accidents from July 29.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Grace for comments.
