Police to launch week-long campaign on using phones while driving

Police said on Sunday they would be conducting a week-long road safety campaign to clamp down on phone use by drivers.

The campaign begins on Monday and will run until September 10.

“As is well known while using a phone results in the driver’s attention being distracted,” an announcement said, adding that such actions greatly contribute to increasing the likelihood of a road traffic collision.

“At European level, modern surveys show that between 10% and 30% of all road traffic collisions are caused by distracted drivers. Mobile phone use plays a key role in this.”
