A number of drivers were given words of advice, and two were given fixed penalty notices, during an operation by Avon and Somerset Police in Bath on Friday morning.
Police ran the safety operation during rush hour on Friday morning, 17th March, in a bid to enforce the law of not using a mobile phone while driving.
As a result of the exercise, two people were given a fixed penalty notice for using their mobile phones while driving.
A further eight drivers were given words of advice by officers.
The law recently changed, so you can now get 6 penalty points on your licence and a fine of £200 if you’re caught using your mobile at the wheel.
It’s illegal to use a mobile phone or similar device while driving, or riding a motorcycle. The rules are the same if you’re stopped at traffic lights or queuing in traffic.
The police can also stop you if they think you’re not in control of your vehicle because you’re distracted. This includes if you’re using devices like your sat nav or car radio.
