Be Phone Smart Campaign

EDM number 1008 in 2016-17, proposed by Greg Knight on 01/03/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Roads and Telecommunications.

That this House welcomes the BePhoneSmart.UK website which encourages drivers to not use their handheld mobile telephone whilst driving; notes that statistics from the 2016 RAC Report on Motoring shows that the levels of telephone use at the wheel has now reached epidemic proportions with one in three now admitting to using their telephones whilst driving; and further notes that whilst increasing penalties may deter this, a proactive campaign like Be Phone Smart raises awareness of the dangers of using a handheld mobile telephone at the wheel and can play a positive role in changing driver behaviour.

This motion has been signed by a total of 27 MPs.
