Police are using buses to catch drivers on mobile phones

Police officers are riding on buses to catch drivers using their mobile phones.

Road Safety Officers from Hampshire and the Thames Valley are taking part in a joint operation, using the height of a bus as a vantage point to spot wrongdoing.

Those caught using a mobile phone while driving can get a fixed penalty notice.

A Police Office when in uniform is permitted free travel at any time (at least on Kernow vehicles).
Suspect that is the case on all public transport however.
