Using a Mobile Device

If you have been caught committing a mobile phone driving offence, contact CM Solicitors today. The penalties and fines for a mobile phone offence can be severe and it is essential to have expert representation to ensure you receive the best outcome.

The legislation states that no person shall drive a motor vehicle on a road if they are using, a hand-held mobile telephone or a hand-held device of a kind (any device which performs an interactive communication function by transmitting and receiving data other than a two-way radio).

If you are overseeing a provisional driver and you are a passenger in the vehicle, and you are using your mobile phone, this too can amount to a mobile phone offence.

What kind of defence could be looked at?

Our motoring solicitors have a great deal of experience in mobile phone offence matters and we ensure to look at all of the facts surrounding your case in order to provide the best possible outcome. If you can show that you were using a mobile device due to an emergency, and it was dangerous or unreasonable to stop, this can be used as mitigation.

What are the kinds of punishments?

If you have been caught committing a mobile phone offence, you could receive three penalty points. You could also be issued with a fine of up to £1,000. If you have been caught committing this offence and you are driving a vehicle for 8 or more people, you could be issued with a fine of up to £2,500.
