Letter: Phone calls while driving
Date published: 24 January 2017
Texting and making or receiving phone calls while driving should have stiffer penalties
Texting and making or receiving phone calls while driving should have stiffer penalties. Often causing accidents. Insurance companies should also play a part in increasing premiums.
Far too many accidents are happening with people who feel they have right to do what they do. People should remember that its a privilege to drive. Cars are not toys.
Police should check all phones when cars have been in an accident. They can check when the person involved last used their phones.
The views expressed are those of the author of the letter and not those of Rochdale Online.
