PACTS has joined other road safety charities and organisations in urging the mobile phone industry to include an ‘opt out’ driving mode as standard on all mobile handsets.
The Department for Transport (DfT) has held a consultation seeking views on ‘changes to the Fixed Penalty Notice and penalty points for the use of a hand-held mobile phone whilst driving’. The full details of the consultation can be found here. PACTS has given a full response to the consultation. That response is available here. The consultation is now closed and the DfT are now analysing the feedback received.
