Drivers support tougher mobile phone penalties
In a survey commissioned by Autonational Rescue, 43% of UK drivers want to see heavier fines introduced for drivers using a mobile phone while on the move.
Respondents favoured fines of up to £120 for a first offence compared with the £60 fine currently in force.
And 31% of respondents want to see even tougher measures with offending motorists banned from driving for six months.
31% also want to see an increase in the number of penalty points issued on the licence – up to five points rather than the current three. And 14% said offenders should be made to do community work.
