Driving and using a mobile phone

The Department for Transport is running a survey on proposed changes to penalties for using a hand-held mobile phone while driving. Some have pointed out that there is no explicit mention of law enforcement, only points and penalties, and that it doesn’t seem to apply to sat nav ‘adjustments’ while driving. However there are free text boxes for those who want to offer their thoughts.

The online survey is at http://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/83EV0

Alternatively, you are welcome to email them directly at mobilephone.consultation@dft.gsi.gov.uk or you can write a letter to:
