Last year on Great Britain’s roads there were 368 collisions of all severity where use of a mobile phone was assigned as a contributory factor.

It is now illegal to hold a phone and use it for virtually any purpose when behind the wheel.

This change is hugely welcome, as the initial legislation which banned mobile phone use while driving was passed in 2003, well before the age of the smartphone and focused on interactive communications only.
