People who drive while on their mobile phones are the target of a Humberside Police campaign which starts today. Officers will target irresponsible drivers in the hope of further reducing casualties on the roads and improving driver attitude and behaviour.
Legislation introduced in December 2003 prohibits the use of hand held mobile phones while driving and there is increasing anecdotal evidence that misuse, particularly by people driving for work purposes, is continuing.
"Mobile phones in cars are distracting and if used inappropriately and indeed illegally whilst driving, it considerably increases the risk of a collision."
