    dont get caught out are the new rules on it.

    personally I think I good idea, anything to make the roads a safer place :drive: :mobile:

    The legislation states:

    ** Using hands-free equipment is allowed providing you do not have to hold the handset to dial the number.

    ** You cannot cradle a mobile on your shoulder.

    ** You cannot text, use internet access or video phones.

    ** There is an exemption for calls to the emergency services where it is unsafe or impractical to stop.

    ** Employers will be liable to prosecution if they require employees to use a mobile when driving

    ** And using hand-held mobiles when stopped in a traffic jam is also prohibited, unless it is a lengthy jam and your engine is turned off

    also please check out this link to Her Majesty's Stationery Office (we already have permission to use this source)


    be safe, and avoid that fine!

          A lot of people said that people wouldn't stand for it when the seat belt law came in.* I can't remember the last time I saw someone without a seat belt.
          sadly we see it on a daily basis this neck of the woods

          7 kids in the back after school and no belts, it does annoy me if there were to be an accident half of them would be dead
