Killer mobile phone driver forgiven by victim’s girlfriend – Telegraph.co.uk
Speaking to the BBC about why he was using his mobile, he said: “I was scared of losing her.
“They were emotional calls, they were shouting calls, high-emotion calls, raging calls that shouldn’t have been made that night.
“And I got to live with that forever and ever and ever and ever.”
The case comes as police forces across the country take part in a campaign to raise awareness of the dangers of using a phone at the wheel, with stricter legislation introduced on March 1.
Scores of drivers were stopped on the first day of the crackdown, including 11 in Thames Valley Police’s first patrol of the day.
