More drivers caught using mobile phone while driving

The Road Safety Authority and An Garda Síochána are urging drivers to put their mobile phones away while driving so they can focus all their attention on the road.

In the first two months of 2019, almost 5,000 drivers were detected holding their mobile phone while driving, an increase of 24 per cent in detections compared to the same period in 2018.

Toyota Ireland, in partnership with the RSA, have developed a free ‘Face It Down’ app for iPhone and Android which is designed to save lives on Irish roads. This app rewards all drivers for putting their mobile phone face down when driving, allowing them to redeem the points for a complimentary hot drinks and other incentives.
