Under a new proposal, expected to be implemented from December 1, anyone using a mobile phone at the wheel would face a fine of up to £1,000, starting with a minimum of £30.
The Road Safety Minister, David Jamieson, said that driving while using a mobile phone was `dangerous' and affected the ability to concentrate putting not only the driver but other road users as well at risk.
``Our decision to introduce this new offence will make the roads safer for us all. Missing a call won't kill you, an accident quite possibly could,'' he said.
