A road safety charity has welcomed reports that the government is considering doubling penalty points for those caught using their phone while driving.
Brake is backing the proposed point increase that was recommended by the Metropolitan Police Chief.
– Julie Townsend, deputy chief executive, Brake
This is a welcome proposal, and we hope the government will implement it.
Brake has long campaigned for tougher penalties for mobile phone use at the wheel because of the suffering we see the bereaved and injured victims of road crashes put through as the result of such a senseless and unnecessary risk.
An increase in penalty points is a step in the right direction, but it could provide a more effective deterrent if combined with a increase in the fixed penalty fine to £500-1,000, as well as heightened traffic enforcement, so risky law-breaking drivers know they will not get away with it."

A jury has been told to "put out of their minds" any sympathy or compassion they have for a teenage girl who died at the hands of her ex-boyfriend in Oxfordshire.
Judge Patrick Eccles QC told the panel of six men and six women that they must carefully assess the evidence against Ben Blakeley, 22, and his 17-year-old brother Jake before returning verdicts.
Ben Blakeley is accused of murdering 17-year-old Jayden Parkinson in the countryside on December 3 last year - 24 hours after she had told him she was expecting his child.
The former binman, of Christchurch Road, Reading, Berkshire, admitsmanslaughter and perverting the course of justice but denies her murder.
Jake, of Venners Water, Didcot, Oxfordshire, who was identified for the first time on Monday after the judge lifted a court order, also admits perverting the course of justice but denies preventing a lawful burial.
Oxford Crown Court has heard how, after strangling the teenager, Blakeley enlisted the help of his younger brother to bury her body in their uncle's grave at a cemetery in Didcot.
Summing up the case after three weeks of evidence, Judge Eccles told the jury of six men and six women they had to assess the evidence from each witness and decide whether they felt it was a truthful and reliable account.
