Beware if you are using mobile while driving


People caught talking on their mobile phones while driving in the state will now have to pay a heavier penalty for the offence than just paying a fine, with the Uttarakhand High Court ordering temporary seizure of the cellphones of the offenders in such cases for 24 hours.

Justice Rajiv Sharma of the High Court said the Transport Department should seize the cellphones of those caught using them while driving their vehicles anywhere at least for 24 hours.“The Transport Department shall also  register FIRs against the violators of law involved in overloading, use of mobile phones while driving/jumping red-light,” the HC said. — PTI
