Police across Scotland caught 109 motorists using hand-held mobile phones while driving on the first day of tougher penalties.
The new laws came into force on 27 February
Drivers flouting the law now face a £60 fine and three points on their licence. Motorists previously risked a £30 fine.
A total of 38 people were caught in the Strathclyde region, with Tayside Police pulling over 20 drivers.
Police said they were disappointed that the law was still being ignored despite media coverage of the new penalties.
Inspector John Smith, head of Northern Constabulary's road policing section, said: "Despite the widespread coverage the new law has received in the written and broadcast media it is disappointing to see there are some drivers still willing to flout the law."
