DfT launches public consultation on stricter penalties for hand-held mobile phone use

Fleet News reports that the Department for Transport has launched a public consultation on increasing penalties for using mobile electronic devices while driving. The consultation seeks feedback on proposals to increase the fixed penalty notice level from £100 to £150 for all drivers. It also invites views on increasing the penalty points from three to four points for non-HGV drivers, and three to six points for drivers who hold an HGV licence and commit the offence whilst driving an HGV.
