10,000 Drivers Caught Twice for Distracted Driving

With the ubiquitous presence of tech in our daily lives, is it surprising that nearly 10,000 drivers have been caught twice for distracted driving?

Road safety charity Brake says the findings show authorities are not taking the offence "seriously enough". Although 238,694 people have been caught driving while distracted at least once, just 284 have received a ban as a result, the DVLA said. The findings come in the same week that Tomasz Kroker was jailed for 10 years for causing a crash which killed a mother and three children. He was filmed using his mobile phone just before his lorry ploughed into a queue of vehicles on the A34 in Berkshire.
