Police use double decker buses to catch motorists using phones at the wheel


David Sidwick, the Dorset Police and Crime Commissioner, said: “We are very grateful to Yellow Bus for loaning us one of their buses.

“You would be surprised how many people think it’s OK to use their phone while driving a car which weighs a tonne.

“They came from all walks of life.”

Shaun Helman, chief scientist for behavioural and data sciences at TRL (Transport Research Laboratory), welcomed the legislation being updated, but believes it could benefit by focusing on other factors, not just hand-held devices.
