A lorry driver was jailed for 4 years for ploughing into a car and killing the driver whilst using his mobile phone. Trinity Taylor died at the scene from massive internal injuries, as the force of John Payne’s lorry crushed her car in half and caused a pile up with other vehicles. Mobile phones are the new curse of our society. I have seen several people using them whilst driving, openly flouting the law. I personally think there should be much tougher penalties introduced. This was a young girl who had her whole life ahead of her and everything to live for. How many more mindless deaths will it take before people sit up and take note of how dangerous it is to use mobiles whilst driving. A four year jail term is an insult to this young woman’s memory. John Payne got off lightly.
