Driving And Your Cellphone

Although most people know it’s illegal to use a mobile phone whilst driving, did you know there are other, perhaps less obvious ways that you can break the law with a phone behind the wheel?

It’s not illegal to use your phone as a GPS or SatNav device, but it IS illegal to be touching the screen while you’re driving, or even sitting in traffic with the engine running.

Also, when you pull up to the drive thru to grab a coffee or a burger on the go, it’s illegal to use your phone to pay for your purchase, unless you apply the hand brake and cut the engine first.

Perhaps PC Plod isn’t going to be hiding at the Starbucks window, but you have been warned!
