We're right behind #dontstreamanddrive day

We are pleased to offer our support for the latest #dontstreamanddrive day, which takes place on Tuesday 16 April. It’s a worthy cause highlighting the risk posed by drivers who choose to ‘live-stream’ their journeys using hand-held mobile phones.


“Our message to drivers who still think it’s acceptable to use a hand-held mobile phone for any purpose while driving is simple. Please put it down and give 100 per cent concentration on safe driving. If you don’t, you are likely to kill someone and you will go to prison for a long time.”
