Using hands-free mobile phones while driving could be banned under new plans

Drivers could be banned from using hands-free mobile phones under plans outlined by MPs today.

Stiffer penalties, more enforcement by police and better education are needed to tackle motorists using devices behind the wheel, according to the Commons Transport Committee.

The Government should act to prevent the “entirely avoidable” tragedy of deaths and serious injuries from crashes caused by irresponsible drivers on the phone, it says in a 25-page report published today.
