A new study has shown that 43% of drivers are still unaware of the new harsher penalties for drivers caught using their mobile phones at the wheel.
While the UK has strict road safety laws, there were still 1,780 road deaths in the last year. That's just under five people dying every day on UK roads (sponsored post).
Over half a million UK motorists use their phone while driving. Stats reveal that in 2013 mobile phones were a factor in 22% of fatal road accidents.
Should the minimum driving age be raised, or is better driving education and training a better answer to improving road safety levels on our roads?
