The number of people caught using a hand-held cellphone while driving has reached record levels.
Police figures show more than 1250 people were caught using a hand-held cellphone while driving in November.
The regulation was introduced in November 2009 and the monthly average since then has been just over 700.
November coincided with a two-week blitz on drivers when about 800 tickets were issued.
The Automobile Association says people who break the road rule are putting other lives at risk.
It says it is obvious more blitzes are needed to help get the message across.
