Police officers in Norfolk, Suffolk and Northamptonshire are among those across the country who are taking part in a campaign to tackle drivers who use handheld mobile phones while driving.

Here are a selection of ITV News Anglia viewers' opinions on the subject:

– Heather Sagin

"People that do (use phones whilst driving) should be banned & imprisoned. There is no need for it at all."

– Robert Butal

"No problem if you're stuck in traffic jam and stationary but no excuse when driving. Seen too many drivers drift over into the hard shoulder or over the centre lines because they're either talking on a phone or texting or trying to reprogram their sat nav's."

– Andrew Pullen
