Do you think there needs to be a clamp-down on driver's who use their mobile phones while driving?

The Team Reporter from Marlborough Express

Under the Land Transport Rule, it's illegal for driver's to use their hand-held mobile device to make, receive or terminate a telephone call; create, send or read a text message or email; create, send or view a video message or communicate in a similar or any other way.
Penalties are an $80 fine and 20 demerit points.
Drivers can use a mobile phone to make a call while driving only if it is an emergency situation and unsafe or impracticable to stop the vehicle to make the call.
Have you had any close-calls as a result of driver's using their mobile phones?
