Police to launch safety campaign on using phone while driving

As part of ongoing efforts to improve road safety, the police will on Monday launch as week-long campaign against not having both hands on the wheel, which will mainly focus on those using mobile phones while behind the wheel.

On an international basis, breaking the concentration of the driver is one of the main causes in the increased number of traffic accidents, caused by the fact that a driver who is not concentrating on the road will take longer to react in the case of an emergency.

The use of mobile phones while driving has a drastic impact on the driver’s attention to the road, especially while trying to send a text at the same time.

Using a phone while driving leads to a fine and points on the licence.
