New law on Hand-help mobiles

Anyone caught on a hand-held phone while driving will be subject to a £60 fine AND 3 points on your license, which can be increased to a £1,000 fine if the matter goes to court (£2,500 if the driver is driving a lorry or a bus).

People have asked if they can use it when stuck in traffic, the answer is ‘The ban still applies’. The ban applies when driving and driving includes time stopped at traffic lights or other hold-ups when a vehicle is expected to move off after a short while. The exception exists in lengthy tailbacks when engines are turned off.
