9:00am Monday 21st January 2013 in News
Lancashire Police are cracking down this month on motorists who use their mobile phones whilst driving.
Road Policing Chief Inspector Debbie Howard said: “The consequences of driving whilst using a mobile phone can be catastrophic.
“It diverts attention away from the road and increases the chances of being involved in a road traffic collision.” In 2012, 5,052 drivers in Lancashire were caught by police using a mobile phone whilst driving.
