Two infractions at the same time: do not wear a seat belt and use the mobile phone while driving. This has been the "double infraction" that a driver commits at the same time and that the Pegasus radar of the General Directorate of Traffic (DGT) has recorded once again. But it is not the only one since distractions like this are among the most persecuted by the organism. Unfortunately, they are the ones more traffic accidents and deaths provoke daily.

The scope of the Pegasus helicopter is such that the images perfectly appreciate, not only the speed, but all the other details. In fact, the driver of this vehicle had to face a double penalty. The first, for not using the seat belt, considered a serious infraction with 200 euros of fine and the deduction of 3 points of the driving license.
As well as the sanction for using the mobile phone, of 200 euros and also with deduction of 3 points of the card. This driver, therefore, had to face a fine of 400 euros and the withdrawal of 6 points of permission at the same time.
It should be noted that, in 2017, distraction appears as the first cause of fatal accidents by 33%, ahead of speed and alcohol, which is 29 and 26%, respectively. Moreover, the available evidence indicates that the use of the mobile phone while driving increases significantly (between three and four times) collision risk. Dialing a mobile phone number, answering a phone call, reading or answering a "whatsapp", manipulating the browser or using social networks, means looking away from the road for a period of time, during which the vehicle runs without control and circumstances that cause a serious accident may arise.
