Police target people who use mobiles while driving
DRIVERS using hand held mobile phones will be targeted in a special day of action this week.
Patrols will be out in Somerset from Thursday, October 10, to catch offenders.
The crackdown has been organised by Somerset County Council’s Road Safety Team and Avon and Somerset Police.
Terry Beale, Somerset Road Safety Manager, said: “We see people every day using their phone while driving. But it is extremely dangerous and can lead to tragic consequences.
“There is nothing so urgent that can justify taking away a person’s life.”
