Mobile Phone Crackdown

If you are looking for a cheap catalytic converter for sale then you have come to the right place.

As many cars will have been put through their paces this cold, wet winter, it will be time to have a check soon, to check everything is in order.

Motorists will also be facing a crackdown on mobile phone usage this winter, to enforce heavier fines and penalties for using a phone at the wheel.

Though legislation was introduced to clamp down on mobile phone usage over ten months ago, Monday January 22 2018 will see the start of a week-long crackdown in parts of the country.

Remember, you can now get a £200 fine and six points on your license if caught using a mobile phone.

Chief Inspector Graham Milne, from the Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit, told Gazette Live: “Calling, texting, using social media or recording videos from phones whilst driving are all examples of offences we have dealt with and these actions do put innocent road users lives at serious risk.

Distraction at the wheel is one of the four main factors in fatal road traffic accidents, he went on to warn.

In fact, using a mobile phone to make a call or go online has been shown to make drivers 25 times more likely to have a collision, than those drivers who are driving with proper care and attention.

As driving conditions are so much worse in the winter mobile phone usage can have even more of an impact, so be careful in the coming weeks and months.
