Road Safety working group warn about mobile phones

The Donegal Road Safety Working Group has launched its first campaign of 2010, focusing on the dangerous use of mobile phones by drivers.

At today's launch, presided over by Mayor Cllr Brendan Byrne, Donegal Gardai warned they will be increasing their enforcement of existing legislation.

Spokesperson Eamon Brown says mobile phone use has now overtaken seatbelt offences, to become the second highest penalty point offence after speeding..
