Kent County Council Road Safety Team Leader Vicky Harvey said: “This campaign aims to highlight to drivers that using your mobile phone hands-free is not as safe as you may think, even though its legal.
“Even an unimpaired driver travelling at 70mph will travel at least 31 metres whilst reacting in an emergency but at the drink-drive limit, due to the impairment, this extends to at least 35 metres.
“However, driving while talking on your hands-free mobile phone means you will travel at least 39 metres, a further eight metres before touching the brake pedal – that’s as long as a double decker bus.
“If it’s a hand-held phone, the impairment is even worse.
“Of course, delaying your reactions will extend your stopping distance so, working with our partners, this campaign seeks to highlight the additional risks drivers who use a mobile phone face.
“My advice is to delay the call, not your reactions.”
SEVENOAKS DISTRICT COUNCIL DRAFT LOCAL PLAN CONSULTATION (JULY 2018)
We are launching our Draft Local Plan consultation on 16 July 2018 and this will run until 5pm on 10 September 2018. For further information, please see the Council’s website www.sevenoaks.gov.uk/draftlocalplan
We would love to hear your views!
The Local Plan is important planning policy that says what can be built and where and will guide housing, employment, retail and other infrastructure needs up to 2035.
Last year we sent a survey to every home in the District asking for your views on the ‘Issues’ facing the area over the next twenty years and our suggested ‘Options’ for dealing with them. We had a magnificent response – over 15,000 of you took part – and overwhelmingly you supported our ideas, which have been incorporated into this draft of the Local Plan.
This is now your opportunity to make your views known on policies and sites within the Plan and to contribute to what we hope is an ambitious and appropriate plan for the District.
How can I have my say?
We would prefer you to comment on our sites and policies using the above links, but alternatively you can complete a consultation form and send it to us at email@example.com or Planning Policy, Sevenoaks District Council, Argyle Road, Sevenoaks, TN13 1HG (clearly stating the site or policy reference please).
