Drivers illegally using mobiles up 30% in Thames Valley

The number of motorists caught illegally using their mobile phones while driving in the Thames Valley has risen by more than 30%.

Officers caught more than 9,700 drivers in the past year, compared to 7,290 the year before - an increase of 33%.

They said the growing popularity of smart phones was partly to blame.

A spokesperson said drivers' reaction times while using a handheld phone were 30% worse than if driving under the legal alcohol allowance.
