Tougher penalties for drivers using a phone on the way

TOUGHER penalties for drivers caught using their mobile phones while driving come into force in Queensland on September 1.

Queensland Police will impose tougher penalties for drivers caught using their mobile phone behind the wheel.

Drivers caught using their phones behind the wheel twice in 12 months will lose 9 of their 12 licence points.

Queensland police have increased the range of operations for better enforcement of the penalties.

Road Minister Mark Bailey has said the new law is not about revenue, but aimed at improving road safety.
