A worrying trend of drivers using mobile phones continues to rise as UK drivers continue to fail to heed numerous warnings by the government and driving authorities.
Online PR News – 15-February-2010 – – In the last twelve months, the Department for Transport revealed the number of drivers using a mobile phone whilst at the wheel of a car jumped from 1.1% to 1.4% and from 2.2% to 2.6% for van and lorry drivers.
Neil Grieg, director of policy and research at the Institute of Advanced Motorists is concerned that the campaigns against the illegal use of mobile phones at the wheel are far from effective.
Mr Grieg said: “Along with consistent and high-profile policing, drivers need to be educated about how and why driving on the phone is so dangerous.
"Deaths and injuries linked to mobile pone use wreck lives and are completely avoidable. The majority of road users deserve to be protected from an irresponsible and selfish minority.
"Enforcement is the key weapon against them. More high-profile policing is the answer but unfortunately many police forces appear to be cutting back in this direction."
It is widely regarded that a driver’s reactions at the wheel reduce by almost 50% when simultaneously having a conversation at the wheel.
Instead of flouting the law it is possible for drivers to choose a safer, more efficient method to answer phone calls in the car. Bluetooth mobile phone accessories are the most reliable and secure way to have a conversation whilst maintaining your focus on the road. A Bluetooth headset can be worn on your ear, allowing you to make and receive calls at the touch of a single button – don’t risk your own life and the lives of others.
