Cambridgeshire: Dangers Of Driving & Calling
Figures from Cambridgeshire Police more than 280 drivers were caught using a mobile while driving in February.
Figures from the force show 2,535 people were caught using a mobile while driving last year, compared to 2,431 in 2011.
To highlight the dangers of using a mobile phone at the wheel, the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Road Safety Partnership invited Heart Reporter Tom Horn to the Alconbury Air Field Driving Test Centre.
There, Tom sat alongside an instructor who also had control of the car, and was asked to drive around an obstacle course while talking and texting on his mobile phone.

A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Police said: "Driving while using a mobile phone is very dangerous as the driver will be distracted and as a result more likely to be involved in a collision.
Will will continue to target motorists who use mobile phones while driving and anyone caught faces prosecution."
