Magistrates in Poole have heard two cases of men being caught driving while using a mobile phone resulting in fines, points, and a driving disqualification.
The first defendant – a 24-year old man from Kent – was convicted in his absence after being caught with his mobile at the wheel in Christchurch on July 27, 2017. Magistrates fined him £220 and imposed costs of £200, plus a £30 surcharge. They also endorsed his license with six penalty points.
The second case involved a 39-year-old man from Bournemouth who was caught using his mobile while driving in the city on September 8 2017.
Due to repeated offending he was banned from the roads for six months, fined £220 and ordered to pay £300 costs and a £30 surcharge. He also received six points on his license.
As of March 2017, those caught using a mobile phone while driving face a financial penalty of at least £200 and a minimum six points on their license.
