Our smartphones can do lots of very cool things. Lately though, the police have found that we’re watching movies, TV shows and making video calls whilst driving. This, because you’re not looking at the road properly, is very dangerous.
In recent years, there’s been a marked increase in this activity, especially with long-distance lorry drivers who have to spend large amounts of time behind the wheel. The police have stepped up their patrols, mostly in unmarked cars, to clamp down on this activity.
Recently the Central Motorway Police Group caught a couple of drivers doing just this and have released the video of the second driver, who was sadly only given a £100 fine.
