Motorists Caught On Phones

Over 700 motorists were caught using their mobile phones while driving in a week long police enforcement campaign.

Thames Valley Police finished the joint operation with Hampshire Constabulary, on Saturday night.

Fixed penalty points and fines were handed out to drivers including 117 in Berkshire and 136 in Bucks.

This campaign served to remind motorists of the penalties of using a mobile phone whilst driving. Motorists are four times more likely to crash if using a mobile phone while driving and it slows the reaction time to 50%.
