New Plans In Place To Clamp Down On Drivers Using Mobile Phones
Strict new laws coming in...
The government have announced that under new rules expected to come in next year, drivers using mobile phones will be handed six penalty points and a £200 fine.
According to Road Safety GB, new drivers will come under particular scrutiny. Those caught within two years of being on the road will face having their licences revoked and resitting their test.
