Lorry drivers to be suspended if caught using phones

Sep 16, 2018
The Office of the Traffic Commissioner is urging transport managers to warn their drivers of the possible consequences of using mobile phones while driving.

If a driver is caught using a hand-held mobile phone at the wheel they could face a suspension from driving commercial vehicles. That is in addition to the fine and points they’ll receive. Traffic Commissioners are told about mobile phone offending and will bring drivers in to conduct hearings after their conviction.

If an offending driver is caught driving a commercial vehicle, the minimum suspension period is four weeks. That will affect their livelihood and is likely to impact on their employer’s business too.

The Commissioners believe drivers have a responsibility to maintain a high standard of driving to ensure the safety of other, more vulnerable road users.
