You can't be taking any chances out on the roads these days. You could end up with an €80 fine and three penalty points to boot.

Although the Dealer frequently sees people getting away with using their mobile phones while driving, there’s always a few ould sods who get caught.

Like the tractor driver today in Co Meath who was caught by the Meath traffic unit who were out on the prowl – I mean patrol.

The traffic unit caught the unsuspecting tractor driver while he was holding a mobile phone and issued him with a fixed-charge penalty notice of €80 and three penalty points.

Ouch! Considering the driver probably needs to use his phone while driving, maybe he should take the Dealer’s advice and invest in a hands-free set?

A quick search on Amazon shows they come in a good bit cheaper than €80.
