Students who drive to campus face a police crackdown if they shuffle their playlist on their mobile while in the car.
Using your phone while driving has been against the law in the UK since 2003.
However, there has always been a slight loophole that has allowed drivers to take photos and videos while driving.
But in the New Year it will now be an offence to use your your mobile to do anything while you are driving
And that include shuffling songs on your playlist.
Tuxtra spoke to Cleveland Police Officer Darren Brown to see how the new rules will work.
I am a Sports journalist Student here at Teesside University.
I am currently in my first year here and I have very high ambitions for my studies here at Teesside University and I am confident that this course will give me the opportunity to fulfill them ambitions. These ambitions consist of; becoming a sport commentator, being a sports journalist for a newspaper/radio or being a reporter for a national TV show.
I hope that when you see my content here on TUxtra, you will see my passion for this course and how confident I am that I will be successful in this line of work. I currently have no work experience within this course however, I have quite a bit of experience elsewhere, for example, i have worked in bars and local takeaway shops, and i believe that that has provided me with a lot of confidence and the ability to communicate with strangers.
Thank you very much for viewing my profile and you come back again!
