Tougher penalties for drivers using phones

Drivers could face tougher penalties for using phones as a study found 7% of them used phones while driving and 42% had them in their hands and were not using hands-free.

Even on a pedestrian crossing drivers did not stop with a study by Prévention Routière safety group showing 7% continuing their conversations.

The government road safety agency Sécurité Routière has called for harsher penalties as it says that about one in 10 fatal accidents is linked to people using mobile phones.
