Thanks. Is it an offence- yes it is. In fact it could be far worse because you agreed you had been distracted and it could be driving without due care/careless driving.

All you can do is see what the Police decide. if you have no other previous you are likely just to get a caution.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
