CARS WARN­ING

CHESHIRE po­lice are warn­ing mo­torists of the dan­gers of driv­ing while dis­tracted.

In 2015 of­fi­cers is­sued 2,041 tick­ets to driv­ers us­ing a mo­bile phone and 419 for not be­ing in proper con­trol.

Launch­ing a crack­down on those tex­ting or mak­ing phone calls while driv­ing, PC Eoin An­der­son said: “We want to drive the mes­sage home that be­ing dis­tracted at the wheel causes col­li­sions, in­juries and in some cases, death.”
