Motorists who use a hand-held mobile phone while driving are being targeted as part of a police road safety campaign.

So far, 150 motorists have been fined as part of the ‘Think’ campaign, which will run throughout July in Cambridgeshire.

Inspector Mark Rogers said: “Over the coming weeks officers will be carrying out regular patrols targeting those flouting the law in relation to mobile phones when driving.

“It only takes a few seconds distraction from a mobile to cause a collision, which can have fatal consequences.

“Roads can be a dangerous place when the law is not respected and adhered to. If we are to reduce the number of fatalities and casualties on the county’s roads it is vital people comply with the law.”

Last year, 2,535 drivers across Cambridgeshire were issued with the £60 fixed penalty notice and three points on their licence for using a mobile phone while driving.
