Drive connected but drive safe

We are in the middle of a nationwide campaign by the police to crack down on mobile phone use while at the wheel.  

Recently a lorry driver was spotted on a motorway using TWO mobile phones at the same time!  He must have been steering his left-hand drive lorry with his knees.  Most people are not that stupid of course, but using a phone by holding it in your hands while driving could get you a £200 fine and six penalty points on your licence - and in the worst case scenario injury or death to driver and possibly other road users.

Hands-free usage doesn't always get you off the hook though - if it is shown that using hands free has distracted a driver, then £100 fiine and three points will follow.
