The road safety charity Brake says drivers who try to multi-task while at the wheel are putting lives at risk. It is calling on mobile phone users to turn them off or put them in the boot when they are driving.
The charity has revealed that 60,000 drivers in the Midlands have points for using mobile phones while driving and other distractions.
Joe Burns from the charity says drivers should keep their phones switched off and out of sight.
