Had a virgin van driver behind me today on his mobile phone! He was talking and also had his head down texting,this went on for around 5 to 6 miles through huddersfield!

he tried to steer with one hand around a corner and went wide making on coming car swerve.

Then later crossed a zebra crossing not noticing two people waiting to cross..

He needs telling about this asap i have the registration of the van YE12 UPN

He doesn't need telling, he needs prosecuting!

Re: Virgin driver on mobile phone while driving.

I agree - In a past career, I dealt with many accidents, some serious as a result of inconsiderate drivers using mobile phones.

Note the lorry driver who has just been sentenced to 10 years for killing members of a family as a result of his misuse of a mobile phone whilst driving an HGV.

Pass his details to VM and let them decide how to deal with him.

Re: Virgin driver on mobile phone while driving.

Hi Johnboy1974

Firstly may I thank you for bringing this to our attention and also thank you or joining us on the community.

This is being escalated today.   I am going to send a pm to you for me to take some further details from you in order for me to provide as much information as I can when raising this incident.

You can find this in the next to your forum name.

If you could get back to me on this that would be great.

Kind regards.

Karen_A

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
