Motorists and mobiles: your view

1 of 1

The news that the Government has decided against legislation that would outlaw the use of mobile phones by motorists on the move has sparked a furious debate in our News talk boards.

david w reckons that the use of a mobile phone is part of modern life: ” ” I spend quite a bit of time on the phone in the car (using one of those crap hands-free kits), but I am aware that it is a distraction. What do you do though? I drive 25,000 miles a year on business. ”

orpheus argues: ” So david w, if you knocked off and killed a biker whilst on the phone you would be happy with the excuse: “What do you do though? I drive 25,000 miles a year on business” …I think not. No business is worth risking an accident over. ”

sprag says that the Government is using the idea that any ban would be unenforceable as an excuse to do nothing; ” the filth can’t enforce a law against mobile phone use in cars, the t**ts are too busy going after bikes with small number plates and loud cans. ”
