It seems that various police forces around the country are upping their game when it comes to nabbing drivers using their mobile phones whilst driving. It is also being suggested that other members of the driving public should report vehicles that they see using phones.

For what it's worth, Thames Valley Police state that:

  • Research shows that all phone calls – using any type of mobile - distract you from driving.
  • Reaction times for drivers using a handheld phone are 30 per cent worse than for driving under the influence of alcohol at the legal limit.
  • You are also four times more likely to crash if you use a mobile phone while driving.

Assuming the mechanics of reporting can be safely and easily achieved, would you or wouldn't you report a mobile user driving in their vehicle?
