Tougher laws on mobile phone use while driving come in this week

Monday February 27 2017

The new laws come in on Wednesday The new laws come in on Wednesday

DRIVERS who have held a license for less than two years are likely to be banned if they are caught using a mobile phone under new laws that come in this week - that will also see existing punishments double. 

The penalty for motorists caught using a mobile phone will double from a £100 fine and three points to £200 and six points on Wednesday, March 1.

Drivers could even face prosecution if police do not think the fine is enough of a penalty, especially if it involves crash.

Motorists will also no longer be offered the opportunity to go on a driver awareness course once the new legislation comes into force.
