Mobile phones: remind your drivers of the risks

Mobile phones: remind your drivers of the risks

Professional drivers face action against vocational licences on top of fine and points 


If one of your drivers is caught using a hand held mobile phone whilst driving they could face a suspension from driving commercial vehicles.

That’s in addition to the fine and points they’ll receive.

Traffic commissioners are told about mobile phone offending and will call drivers in to conduct hearings.

If a driver’s caught in a commercial vehicle, the minimum suspension period is four weeks.

That will affect their livelihood and is likely to impact on your business too.

There’s a leaflet you can share with your drivers warning about the dangers of using hand held devices while driving.

Professional drivers have a responsibility to maintain a high standard of driving to ensure the safety of other, more vulnerable road users.
