1 Includes casualties that were seriously and slightly injured.

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many people have been (a) killed and (b) injured by drivers who were using hand-held mobile phones. (98546)

In 2005 there were 12 people killed and 452 people injured in road accidents where a police officer attended the scene and “driver using mobile phone” was reported as a contributory factor. This contributory factor includes “hand-held” and “hands-free” phones, where their use (or attempted use) contributed to the accident.
