Using Phone – Not Driving

Question:

My wife, on her way to work, pulled over to call work and tell them she would be late.

A police officer knocked on the window of her stationary car, engine was still running, and told her that she was guilty of using a mobile phone whilst driving. She was fined on the spot £80 plus 3 points on her licence.

Paula Says:

The fine would normally be £60 and 3 penalty points.

Using a phone whilst stationary in a car is not an offence. The police have to prove that she was “driving” whilst using a phone for her to be found guilty.

If you would like me to try and get the ticket written off then I will be able to assist further for a fixed fee.

Come back to me if she wants to challenge this matter.
