Letter: Phone calls while driving

Date published: 24 January 2017

Dear Editor,

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.

Thank you.
