Fewer drivers in Northern Ireland caught on the phone

The number of people caught using a mobile phone while driving in Northern Ireland has halved from 9,908 in 2011 to 4,802 in 2017.

That was 10% of all motoring offences committed in 2017, according to police.

A government consultation on plans to increase fines and penalty points closes on Tuesday.
