    Should be shot at dawn.

    I was hit by a car with the driver on his phone, lucky it was in town and at a snail's pace - but he should have been stationary anyway - it was at a light-controlled crossing and he seemed oblivious to the people walking in front of him.

    Have a look at this horror clip of a driver on their phone. The guy should never be allowed out of prison again!

    About time they treated it the same as drink driving and started dishing out bans.

    They could make it so that you are shot at dawn if caught driving whilst on the phone but most people would still do it because they all know the chances of getting caught are statistically miniscule.

    I ride a motorcycle so am able to look down into cars and filter through traffic a lot and it's staggering how many people think it's acceptable to use their phone while driving. No excuse whatsoever for doing it - so much stiffer penalties I think are entirely acceptable for something so unnecessary and so dangerous.

    It wouldnt be miniscule if there were enough police about. Easy to park a police car and catch them. See it every day.

    So many drivers think that it's not obvious to others that they're on their phones.
    One hand on the wheel, the other strangely out of site, and far too many glances down considering they should be concentrating on the road ahead and all around.
    I spot them every day, its just a shame there's not more police around to spot them aswell.

    Agreed really dangerous especially texting and reading, should carry a ban, use the bus lane cameras etc to monitor it, people would soon stop!

    Police are all in their camera vans trying to catch someone doing 22 mph in a 20 mph zone.

    I believe that the camera operators in vans aren't usually Police officers.
