During a nationwide traffic study, road safety chiefs used spotters to tot up the number of people making calls, The Sun reported.

The Department of Transport survey shows 300,000 car-owners and 160,000 goods vehicle drivers use their mobile.

Lib Dem transport spokesman Norman Baker said: "The message is clearly not getting through.

"Despite tougher penalties a frightening number of drivers still use their mobile."

Motorists on the phone are blamed for the increase in dangerous and careless driving.
