Thousands of Drivers Caught On Mobiles

3248 fixed penalty notices have been given to drivers in Devon and Cornwall caught using their mobile phones behind the wheel in the past 12 months.

It normally means a sixty pound fine and 3 penalty points.

But MPC Mark Goulding says using a phone can have much worse consequences: "when they are concentrating on their text message or their phone they are not concentrating on the road so there is greater risk of their being a collision of sorts."
