Drivers require tougher penalties for using mobile phones while driving
Half of vehicle drivers believe the existing combination of a fine and points for unlawfully utilizing smart phones while driving ought to be more serious, RAC research has discovered.
Fifty-two percent of the 2,100 vehicle drivers surveyed felt the standard penalty of 3 charge points and a fine of 100 for drivers captured using a handheld mobile phone at the wheel must be increased. Forty-one percent believed it is currently set at the proper level.
Nearly a third (31%) said that enhancing the severity of the charge will not make any difference at all in altering the behavior of those drivers who are prepared to break the law in this way.
