A dangerous road ahead…
A report out today from the RAC indicates that using a mobile phone whilst driving is on the increase. It is illegal to use a hand held mobile phone whilst driving, and police figures suggest it was a contributing factor in 2% of road fatalities in 2010.
42% would like to see a ban for people convicted of mobile phone related offences, whilst 53% support fines and three or six points on a licence. Only 4% support having no penalty at all.

The recent Department for Transport British Social Attitudes 2011 survey reveals that half (49%) of respondents wanted any form of mobile phone usage in a car banned and 71% felt the law was not properly enforced. Moreover 90% claimed it was not safe to talk on a hand held mobile while driving.
