DON'T PICK YOUR PHONE UP WHEN DRIVING

Dying to take a call Picture

The Law on calling or texting while driving is quite clear, and nobody can claim they are unaware of it.

The penalty for using a mobile phone whilst driving is £200 and six penalty points. This includes making calls or even texting whilst in stationary traffic or at traffic lights !

Drivers are 4 times more likely to be involved in an accident when their concentration is interrupted.

No phone call / text is worth the fine or, worse, being involved in a collision with a pedestrian or other road user,.
