As we all know driving whilst on the mobile telephone is a serious motoring offence.
The mobile phone offence carries a fine of up to £1000 and 3 points on your licence. You must be shown to have been using the mobile phone whilst driving, not just holding a non-operative telephone. Using the phone includes any kind of telecommunications activity, not just sending or receiving a call whilst driving.
It will often assist you to be able to produce your mobile telephone records as evidence to show that you were not using your mobile at the time of the alleged offence. This can rebut any mistake that a police officer might have made in bringing the allegation in the first place!
