Using your mobile phone without a hands free kit in the car is no longer a fine of £60 but it now also carries a three point penalty on your licence.
Since the introduction of the new penalties last month, over 6 500 people have been caught at a rate of 240 per day.
I find this very hard to believe. Where are the coppers on the street to catch the offenders? Almost all of them have been replaced by a GATSO scamera.
