New penalty point measures introduced for L Drivers and those caught texting

You'll now get penalty points for driving while texting...

It's one of the new measures contained in the new Road Traffic Bill that's been signed off by the Cabinet.

The Bill will see an increase in the number of penalty points you'll get for speeding, not wearing a seat belt and using your mobile phones.

Learner drivers aren't immune either, they face getting points for not displaying their L plates and for driving unaccompanied.
