From 1 December it will be a criminal offence to use a hand-held mobile phone at any time while driving.

Drivers caught using a mobile face a £30 fine. However, the law will be tightened ‘at a later date’ so that offenders are given three points and a £60 fixed penalty.

To begin with, hands-free devices will be allowed and drivers will not be prosecuted for using portable or installed car kits, unless use of a phone affects their driving or leads to a crash.
