This film is a must and should be made available to all schools and also to ALL who drive, every day I see at least three or four drivers holding a mobile phone to their ears, they think that they can get away with it and not be prosecuted, but do they even think about the safety of others around them ?

Amazing piece of work by Gwent police and all concerned. If you haven't seen it - make sure you do.
