MPs call for ban on hands-free use behind the wheel

It's their belief that hands-free devices are just as dangerous as handheld.

MPs call for ban on hands-free use behind the wheel

A group of MPs has suggested a ban on the use of hands-free devices at the wheel.

The Commons Transport Select Committee said that the current legal status of hands-free devices gives the false impression that they’re safe to use. 

The reality they claim, is that motorists are just as likely to be involved in a collision when using a hands-free device as they are a handheld. 

773 casualties occurred on Britain's roads in 2017, including 43 deaths and 135 serious injuries in crashes where a driver using any kind of mobile was a contributory factor.

The rate of enforcement regarding phone use of all types at the wheel has fallen by more than two-thirds since 2011.q

The MPs urged the government to consider whether penalties should be increased further "to better reflect the serious risks created by drivers committing this offence."While mobile phones are a vital part of modern life and business, drivers must always use them safely and responsibly,” said a Department of Transport spokeswoman.

"Being distracted by a mobile phone while driving is dangerous and puts people's lives at risk. The law is clear that anyone driving dangerously is committing a criminal offence."
