Mobile phone offending explained by Police RPU

Using a mobile phone at the wheel is one of the 'fatal four' reasons why people die on Manx roads - according to the Roads Policing Unit.

It's joined by speeding, drink-driving, and neglecting to wear a safety belt - the most common causes of vehicular accidents.

Officers launched a campaign aimed at tackling offenders in hotspots across the Island last month.

Since then, drivers have been stopped by officers in unmarked cars or speed checked and penalised.

Operation Jukebox is expected to run until October this year.

Sergeant Steven Lapsley was live on Mandate yesterday morning - he explained what constitutes breaking the law by using a mobile on the road.
