Repeal the criminal offense of touching a mobile phone in a car

Comment 6th July 2010

It should be an offence to make a mobile call while pressing a phone to your ear with one hand. 

It should not be an offence to touch a phone once (as I have to) to make or receive a hands free call. 

Then, actually enforce the law.  I have been overtaken by more white van drivers and school run mums who are chatting on their mobiles with their hands to their ears, than I have had hot dinners!

Why does this matter?

Presumably, the law is because if you are pressing your phone to your ear you are driving without due care and attention.

Wouldn't this be covered by the motoring offence of "Driving without due care and attention"?

 

Just a thought.
