Action against mobiles – Smartphone sanctions

Drivers caught using mobile phones behind the wheel face stiffer penalties from 1 March. Offenders can now get six points on their licence and a fine of £200. Although Brake welcomes the points increase, a £200 fine for selfishly putting others’ lives in danger is still inadequate.

We also want to see a total ban on phone use: the risk of crashing is four times higher whether you use a hands-free or hand-held phone.
