    The country's on track for the highest number of fines in a year, for using mobile phones while driving

    The country's on track for the highest number of fines in a year, for using mobile phones while driving


    The latest Police driver offence data shows last year's tally of 47-thousand-631 fines was the highest annual figure since the legislation was introduced in 2009.

    But as of the end of September this year, we were sitting at just over 42-thousand fines.

    Superintendent Steve Greally says cellphone use is one of four things police focus on when it comes to driving behaviours -- alongside speed, restraints, and impairment.
