‘Driver’s license revoked for using cell phone while driving’
The Belgian province of Flemish Brabant is planning action against ‘killers in traffic’. From Monday, local and federal authorities will check on the use of alcohol, mobile phones, and tablets while driving. The Public Prosecutor will also impose a driving ban on all those being caught.
So next week, drivers getting caught for these infringements will immediately be summoned to appear in the Police Court, as is announced by the Public Prosecutor of Halle-Vilvoorde (Brussels, Belgium).
“Alcohol intoxication and the use of smartphones or tablets while driving are dangerous and often cause accidents and human suffering,” says the Public Prosecutor. “Traffic safety is important to us, so that’s why we’re organizing this action.” The initiative fits in the context of the provincial action plan against intoxication behind the steering wheel.
