As from today, 1st March 2017, the penalty for using a mobile phone will double to 6 points and attract a £200 fine. Newly qualified drivers, who are within two years since passing their test, as a consequence, will have to retake their tests again.
PC Burns has already issued 7 tickets over a 5 hour period today in Crewe to people seen using their mobile phone whilst driving – some very expensive phone calls for those people.
If you need to use your mobile phone whilst you are out driving, please first pull over in a safe place or wait until you have arrived at your destination to make your call.
