Gardai to launch nationwide blitz tomorrow against drivers using mobile phones

Garda-Logo-284x300Gardaí are launching a nationwide blitz against people using mobile phones while driving tomorrow.

New laws are on the way from next month which make it an offence to send or read a text message – or to even hold or touch a mobile phone while driving.

Gardaí say the aim of the campaign, from tomorrow, is to educate drivers on the risks of using their phones behind the wheel.

According to Gardai it’s one of the most common offences on our roads.
