Driving while using a mobile phone is an increasingly common offence and now results in an on-the-spot fine of £200, plus six 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 careless driving offences 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 CU80 driving offence.
As a law firm, we are committed to fair charging and provide a range of pricing options, including service level guarantees and fixed fees.
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.
We offer free initial advice for all mobile phone offences. For a friendly, down-to-earth chat about your circumstances and how best to defend any careless driving charges against you, please get in touch with our specialist team.
