The laws on driving while using a mobile phone will change next week, closing a loophole that allowed motorists to avoid a £200 fine.
New legislation from March 25, 2022 will mean drivers will not be allowed to handle any mobile device while in control of a vehicle.
It is already illegal to text or make a phone call, other than in an emergency, using a hand-held device while driving. But the new rules will mean touching such a device for any reason - such as checking the time, looking at notifications or scrolling through music will also be banned.
Also from Monday 21st, 2022 the law in Wales will change to #EndPhysicalPunishment for Children.
