MORE than 280 drivers were caught using a mobile while driving last month.
Throughout February Cambridgeshire Police officers taking part in the ‘Think’ road safety campaign caught out 282 motorists committing mobile phone offences.
Last year 2535 drivers caught using a mobile phone were given a £60 fixed penalty notice and three points on their licence.
PC Stephen Gedny, casualty reduction officer, said: “Statistics show that you are much more likely to be involved in a collision if you are distracted from using a mobile phone.
“It therefore never failures to surprise me that there are so many motorists flouting the law.
“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.”
