Cambridgeshire: More Drivers Fined

17 July 2013, 15:33

Cambridgeshire Police have fined 150 drivers so far this month, for using a mobile phone at the wheel.

It's part of a summer campaign by Cambridgeshire Police, focussing on those motorists continuing to use a mobile phone while driving.

Inspector Mark Rogers said: "Over the coming weeks officers will be carrying out regular patrols targeting those flouting the law in relation to mobile phones when driving.

It only takes a few seconds distraction from a mobile to cause a collision, which can have fatal consequences.

Roads can be a dangerous place when the law is not respected and adhered to. 

If we are to reduce the number of fatalities and casualties on the county's roads it is vital people comply with the law."

Last year 2,535 drivers across Cambridgeshire were issued with the £60 fixed penalty notice and three points on their licence for using a mobile phone while driving.
