In response to the Government considering tougher restrictions on driving while using a mobile phone, Allianz's head of motor claims, Nick Kelsall said:

“It’s good to see that the Transport Committee is raising the issue of distracted driving and looking at what the impact using mobile phones has on that.

“It is concerning that not many people are aware, that even under current law, drivers can still be prosecuted for using a hands-free set if it affects their driving. It is essential that employers take appropriate actions to safeguard their employees and road users, educating their fleet drivers on the dangers of distracted driving.

“Allianz would welcome tougher restrictions to ensure that risks are minimised, reducing motor claims, helping to make roads safer for all”.
