Careless Driving

Mobile Phone Driving Offence Solicitors (CU80)

Driving while using a mobile phone is an increasingly common offence and usually results in an on-the-spot fine of £60, plus three penalty points.

There is an added risk of being taken to court, depending on the severity of the offence, which could lead to a fine of up to £2,500 and being disqualified from driving.

The team of expert solicitors here at Lanyon Bowdler are highly experienced in providing legal advice in these cases for people who want to present a strong defence against their charge.

As a law firm, we are committed to fair charging and provide a range of pricing options, including service level guarantees and fixed fees.

USING A MOBILE PHONE WHILST DRIVING

It doesn’t matter if you are caught speaking or texting on the phone, the prosecution will allege that you were not in full control of your car while driving.

You may also be charged with dangerous driving (DD40) or careless driving if you were involved in a road traffic accident. Despite hand-held devices being legal to use while driving, you are open to prosecution if you are not in full control of your vehicle.

But it’s essential to seek legal advice if you believe you have been falsely accused of holding or using a mobile phone while driving, so we can put a strong defence together.
