Motorists caught driving dangerously while using a handheld mobile phone face jail under new guidelines. The Crown Prosecution Service guidance follows a policy change announced in September because of concerns that too many drivers flouted the ban.
Most drivers will still face the standard penalty of a fine and points.
But where driving falls far short of what is safe, prosecutors can press charges of dangerous driving, which carries a maximum two-year sentence.
When he announced the change in policy earlier this year, Director of Public Prosecutions Sir Ken Macdonald said such cases could include sending a text message while driving.
