ON Tuesday, Essex Police held a road traffic operation in the town.
They reported 21 drivers for using their mobile phones whilst driving.
They have all received £200 fine and six points have been added to their licence.
They were all caught within a short period of time in Harlow.
Name and shame them
Only way to stop people doing it completely, is to give them a lifetime ban from ever driving again. If that were to be enforced these inconsiderate motorists would think twice before breaking the law. Using a mobile while driving is like holding a gun in your hand.
You will never stop idiots Charlie, 6pts is a small price to pay for sending a text, it's the same with all these types of drivers, I've won't get caught syndrome.
They need to spend longer doing it instead of a short period of time. From first thing in the morning, on school run, throughout the day I constantly see people using the phone when driving and not discreetly either!!!
Have these idiots not heard of hands free devices? Cheaper than the fine they will receive.
It should be made as unacceptable as drink driving with the same punishment because its obvious the point is not getting across.
should take there phones away as well
shocked they dont drop thee phone its bad enough trying two keep two hands on the wheel with all the potholes about
Should stop people smoking while driving as well
Flogg them all in market square I say.
Selfish idiots. Ban them from driving for life.
Nick all the drivers who have noisy bloody exhausts too.
