A police operation in the Australian state of Victoria discovered some drivers may have been a little more distracted than others.

During the Thursday night sting in Melbourne, police discovered some drivers watching porn while behind the wheel.

"We had punters watching pornos, we had people watching movies," Road policing commissioner Doug Fryer told AAP.

"We had one guy that had a movie going and another phone so he could talk to his friends."

In total 53 drivers were fined during the operation with a majority of those fines given to people caught using their phones while driving.

Mr Fryer says that is not good enough considering the recent fatalities in the state.

"Three drivers, two pedestrians, one motorcycle rider and one cyclist are now no longer with us."
