Driving While Using A Mobile Phone
Driving while using a mobile phone is a commonly charged road traffic offence. Acceptance of a fixed penalty ticket for driving on the phone in Scotland amounts to an admission of guilt. The fixed penalty ticket results in a financial penalty and 6 penalty points. New drivers are, therefore, likely to face revocation of their licence if caught using their phone.
However, it is possible to challenge a fixed penalty in court. McGovern Reid has an excellent track record in mobile phone offences and we regularly challenge police officers in court when they accuse drivers of using their mobile phone.
