Drivers caught using a mobile phone while driving will now be hit harder. However, not as hard as those that are unfortunately seriously injured or killed by those using mobile phones while driving.
New penalties introduced today will see motorists who get caught using a phone while driving receive six points on their licence and a £200 fine – up from the previous three points and £100 penalty.
