3 years on your licence, but you need to declare them to your insurance company for the next 5 years.

Be prepared for higher insurance premiums, and if you do it again you could get a ban (12 points).

The really bad news is its seen as an extremely risky driving offence so by declaring it your premiums will rocket more than a speeding offence.

"Sabine Williams, Head of Motor at Admiral, said: “Claims statistics show that drivers who have been convicted of using their mobile phone whilst driving have a much higher risk of making a claim, and we take this into account when calculating their premium.

“Not only are they putting themselves and other drivers at risk, motorists who receive a conviction for driving whilst using their phone could see their insurance premiums increased by as much as 95 per cent.

“Whilst speeding offences remain the most common conviction, using a mobile phone behind the wheel was the joint third most common motoring offence by policyholders in the last two years.

“Data from UK police forces shows that in excess of 20,000 motorists have been caught driving whilst using a mobile phone since the driving ban came into force, equivalent to just under 70 drivers every day.”

Look on the bright side, it’s 6 points not an accident, resulting in death or serious injury.

Learn from it. Don’t repeat it.
Buy a hands free if calls are important.

And... don’t add to your points tally by speeding. 9 points on your licence will really make your premiums rocket.

Too right talking on your mobile should carry bigger penalties than speeding. Too right insurance companies would balk at it too.

Hopefully you can put that down as a lesson learned.

Should have a similar penalty to drink driving IMO. Dodgy as.

I don’t do it myself as phone is linked to car, and don’t disagree with the law.

But is talking (texting completely different) on a phone that much different to people eating, smoking, changing cd whilst driving.

‘Hold hand up made mistake’

Behave - this isn’t new news or anything
You know its against the law, you know people have been killed.

'.... that much different to people eating,....'

Fines have been issued for this. It falls under the umbrella of driving without due care and attention.

"Fines have been issued for this. It falls under the umbrella of driving without due care and attention."

But it's not illegal though. Eating a donner kebab obviously different to eating an apple.

I believe statistically it is much more likely to distract and therefore potentially result in an accident compared to taking a bite out of an apple, for example.

Yeah and I don't really disagree with it tbh, just playing devils advocate I suppose.

But I'd say someone who answered the phone (1 button pressed) and put it on speaker (1 button pressed) and said to someone "yeah I'm on the way home, should be ten minutes" is less distracted than someone smoking a tab, talking to their friend with the music on.

TBH I think its a case of they have to ban all mobile use to stop people having full on conversations, texting on the phone, scrolling through facebook, talking rubbish on fmttm which is of course distracting.
