Driving requires your full attention at all times and hazards can arise at any time, yet if you are distracted and inattentive (particularly if using a phone), you could end up in a serious accident.
An RAC report on Motoring released in 2016 found an alarming rise in the number of people making calls and texting when they should be paying attention to the road.
The report found that the number of drivers who own up to using a handheld mobile phone has increased from 8% in 2014 to 31% in 2016. Additionally, there has been a rise in drivers sending a text, email or posting on social media, with the figure increasing from 7% two years ago to 19% in 2016.
