Petition Action

People caught using their mobile phones while driving should be banned

Additional Information

I have seen reports that say that people using their mobile phones while driving have the same concentration levels as someone around the drink drive limit. Despite this, the punishments for using your phone is so much less than that for drink driving and time and time again we see stories about serious road collisions where drivers were on the phone or texting. I think that anyone caught using their phone behind the wheel should receive a driving ban.
