More than 700 motorists were fined on the motorways of East Brabant last week because they used their smartphone while driving. Following the example of earlier control weeks, the police checked again from a coach.
Police officers are high in a coach, which means they can look into cars and also check truck drivers. The bus was followed by their colleagues in inconspicuous cars. If the officers on the bus saw a driver with his or her smartphone behind the wheel, they reported this. That person was then stopped and fined; 739 times in five days.
