The NSW Police Minister has apologised after he was caught illegally using a mobile phone to take photographs behind the wheel.

Dubbo MP Troy Grant took to Twitter to post a snap he took at a road works site of a sheep riding inside a car boot. The image was then passed onto his office.

The ex-police inspector has admitted to breaking the law and asked police to slap him with an infringement notice, reports Daily Telegraph.

The former deputy premier faces a $325 fine and four demerit points, in what serves as the latest in a spate of driving offences by NSW politicians.

It was recently revealed newly appointed tourism minister Adam Marshall has 17 speeding offences, including several speeding offences and a drink-driving charge.

The image was accompanied by the text: 'Heading home on the Newell stopped at upgrade works and then saw this. A ewe in the back out on a Saturday drive!'.

'Sitting stationary with the engine off at a road works site is no excuse to use a mobile phone,' Mr Grant told the Telegraph.

'I've contacted the NSW Police to issue me with any appropriate infringement notice, and I hope my experience can serve as a reminder to others.'

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Mr Grant for comment.
