DRIVERS who use mobile phones while behind the wheel are to be targeted in a police crackdown.
Officers on patrol will be on the lookout for motorist using phones in a campaign that will run until the end of January.
Police say that you are four times more likely to crash using a phone, while the use of social networking sites via smart phones is a new concern.
According to a survey of 1000 motorists conducted by Cheshire Police, 45 per cent admitted to sending text messages or making calls.
