The police: The hunt for these drivers will not hold up in court

Although drivers are being watched, that's not all the police see. In particular, the use of hand-held mobile phones is difficult to detect.

Here at home, the punishment is both a fine and a cut in the choir card. The Norwegians are even stricter with a fine of 10,000 kroner, and in Sweden they are just hard to see. In other words, drivers with mobile phones in hand.

The police admit this in an interview with Vi Bilägare .

Because it's not just that drivers who use their mobile phones hand-held are more difficult to spot and pick up in traffic. They are also more difficult to prosecute, it says.

It is especially the connection between the use of hand-held mobile phones and accidents that the police find difficult. Not because they doubt that it is there. The connection, then. But it is difficult to prove in court.

According to the Swedish police, it is 'extremely rare' that drivers will admit that the hand-held mobile phone played a role when they drive the wrong way.

On the other hand, the police do not believe that the problem is new. Because in those days it was just something else that stole the drivers' attention behind the wheel.

– Because in the past you had to change CDs or cassette tapes and tinker with the car radio, says traffic coordinator at the police region ost Björn Thunblad to the media.

Here at home, law enforcement colleagues are regularly on the lookout for drivers who use handheld phones. This can be with specific controls, or as has recently been seen with specially placed photo vans. Read more about it here .

However, a new survey by the Council for Safe Traffic shows that as many as 6 out of 10 drivers do not know about a specific function on their phones. Not even if the 'do not disturb' function can save them from several hefty stalls and quite a few cuts in the choir card.

Here at home, it has been forbidden to talk on hand-held mobile phones since 1 July 1998. However, it was only in 2019 that a majority in the Danish Parliament tightened the rules, so that it also gave a cut in the choir card.
