More incentive to get your hand off it

In September the demerit for illegal phone use behind the wheel changes from four to five.

That makes NSW penalties the highest in Australia and forms part of a strategy to change the way drivers act on our roads. 

Earlier in the year the NSW  Government passed world first legislation to enable camera-based technology to enforce mobile phone offences. 

It’s pretty simple.  Unless your car is parked, don’t even touch your phone while behind the wheel.
