New rules for using mobile devices while driving

From 1st February, drivers holding any mobile devices while driving will be met with harsher penalties. Whereas previously only texting and calling on your mobile was punishable. This was in response to a 20 per cent increase in mobile phone related offenses over the last two years. This increased from 2,938 in 2012 to 3,572 in 2013.
