Cops targeting chatty drivers

The number of drivers being ticketed for talking on a mobile phone while behind the wheel has doubled since 2007. Jørn Pakula Andresen, a national police traffic inspector, called distracted driving “a growing problem”.  Andresen said that using a mobile phone while driving quadruples the risk of accidents and impairs driving performance as much as alcohol. The fine for driving while on the phone is between 500 and 1,500 kroner. – Berlingske
