    Driving Ban for using a phone 1st Dec 17 at 11:08 AM
    Hundreds of new drivers have been given automatic bans for using their mobile phones at the wheel, as part of tougher new laws introduced this year.

    Whenever i go out, it seems normal to see people talking on the phone as they're driving along. When they increased the points as a penalty, i was all in favour but i don't think it's made a diffence to the numbers you see. I mean, how often do you see a Traffic Cop now ?

    Every person they take of the road for this the better. Simple.
    I agree whole heartedly that new drivers using a phone should be given a ban because of the 6 points. Hopefully they will then learn and never do it again.

    Irrespective of how long you've been on the road you should be banned for using your mobile whilst driving. How f*ckless can people be?
