It would appear that people are taking the issue of using their mobile phone while driving seriously.
The latest figures show that the number of people penalised for using their mobile when driving has dropped from this time last year.
We all know the statistics, you are 4 times more likely to crash if you are using a phone while driving and the reaction time for drivers who use their mobile phone when driving is 50% slower than normal driving. It’s obvious that using your phone when you’re behind the wheel is a recipe for disaster – and should always be avoided.
Time and time again we hear people say that the call is important. But the truth is that your life is more important. You should only answer your phone when you are parked in a safe and convenient place. It’s never worth risking yours and other people’s lives.
