Drivers warned against phone use during post-lockdown homeworking

“Using any mobile device while driving is a significant distraction, first of all because of the physical tasks – such as keying in characters on your phone or scrolling through information,” he said. “It’s also mentally distracting, and if you allow yourself to take part in a conversation or try to read and respond to data on your phone, you’re seriously reducingyour ability to focus on the journey, on the road ahead and on the hazards that may be developing. “By ensuring your focus is 100 percent on the journey at all times, you will also be giving yourself the best chance of anticipating any hazards, which is a key part of keeping yourself and others safe.”
