They have also provided funding to train additional police officers to obtain a heavy duty vehicle license. Sgt. Ian Manley of the Highway Surveillance Unit said: "Having the HGV booth gives us Additional enforcement opportunities that we would not have in standard police vehicles.It is very good to have the support of England's roads to enforce this change in legislation.

Drivers caught using their mobile phone behind the wheel face more severe penalties from Wednesday. The fixed fine for being caught using a hand-held phone in the car will double to a fine of £ 200 and six points on your license as of March 1. Offenders for the first time will not be allowed to take a recovery training course.

The Department of Transportation (DfT) said that the use of the mobile phone while driving "has a worse impact on the ability to drive than being above the limit of handling alcoholic beverages" and is introducing its new rules after a consultation the last year.

The fines for this crime were first introduced in 2003, at £ 30. They doubled in 2007 and drivers who did not comply with the law also received three penalty points. In 2013, the fine rose to £ 100, but "there has not been a sustained reduction in the observed use of mobile phones over time," according to the DfT.
