Mobile phone related car accidents

Mobile phone use while driving is a common known cause of car accidents, despite the fact that it is illegal to use a handheld mobile phone whilst driving. Although anyone caught breaking this law faces a £100 fine and 3 penalty points, it hasn't deterred some motorists from breaking the law.

Studies have shown that when using a mobile phone, a driverís concentration and awareness of the road are reduced. This explains why more car accidents are likely. Consequently, car accidents caused by drivers using mobile phones are more likely to result in personal injuries for those involved. Research also suggests that hands free kits do not eliminate the distraction that can cause road accidents, although use of a hands free set is legal.
