Handheld mobile phone law update

The handheld phone law update is out and includes changes to the penalties you will now receive if you’re unwise enough to use your phone at the wheel. 

This is a forward post from the DVSA

From 1 March 2017, the penalties for using a hand-held mobile phone while driving will increase to 6 points on your licence and a Ј200 fine.

THINK! has launched a new campaign encouraging drivers to put their phone in the glove compartment while driving to avoid temptation.

See THINK!’s website to find out more about the campaign.
