Mobile phone addiction at the wheel

Nearly half of all drivers regularly talk on the mobile phone whilst driving

According to a survey by Brake road safety charity, 48% of motorists talk whilst driving, out of these two thirds do this by using a hand-held phone, which is illegal and can result in a £60 fine and 3 penalty points, or depending on the scenario dangerous or careless driving.

Driving whilst using a phone increases reaction times by half a second making the chances of being involved in an accident four times higher than normal.
