Using a phone while driving is illegal and dangerous, but appears to be a temptation many motorists cannot resist.
According to a survey by the AA, more than two in five drivers break the law by answering a call or replying to a text message.
Edmund King, the president of the AA, spoke to BBC Breakfast about the findings.
