Truck driver caught twice in one day on his mobile phone on same bit of A38

A truck driver clocked up and eye watering 12 penalty points on his licence in just ONE DAY after being caught twice while using his mobile phone. Officers from Derbyshire Roads Policing Unit revealed they caught the trucker TWICE in just one day driving while using his phone in South Derbyshire. Police have now published a photograph of the hapless driver on their Twitter page saying he is now facing a driving ban.

His flatbed truck was stopped first on the A38 northbound side in Mickleover after officers spotted him using his phone at 8.30am yesterday, Tuesday, July 23. Just six hours later, the same driver was spotted again at 2pm using his mobile phone, this time on the southbound side at  Findern – less than four miles away. A Tweet by police said: “Selfish behaviour ingrained in some.

Like this chap who has clocked up 12 points in a day. “First stopped A38 North at 8.30am, seen using his phone. Seen doing it again A38 South at 2pm.

“Now has to explain to his boss that in a few weeks he’ll be disqualified from driving.”

Motorists can have a maximum of 12 points on their licence before they risk facing a driving ban.

Police caught the driver  as part of Operation Tramline which is targeted mobile phone enforcement using a Highways England unmarked HGV tractor unit.
