Most illegal phone drivers get courses, not points

Motorists caught using a mobile phone whilst driving are more likely to be given an awareness course than penalty points or a fine, according to data gathered by the RAC.

Of the 85,564 Traffic Offence Reports (TORs) given to drivers caught on their phone by a total of 32 police forces in 2015, almost 63% resulted in the motorist being sent on a course.

The figures are particularly important in light of new laws, which will see drivers caught from March 2017 onwards handed offered a fixed penalty – resulting in six penalty points and a £200 fine.
