New drivers who are caught using a phone at the wheel will lose their licence under new legislation that comes into force today.Some additional details at The Telegraph.
From Wednesday anyone found calling, texting or using an app while driving will face a £200 on-the-spot fine and six points on their licence.
It means that new drivers – who can lose a maximum of six points before being banned for the first two years after passing their test– will face an immediate ban for sending a single text message.
