Heed the law over mobile phones
WHILE I am driving, is it all right to use my mobile phone?
You must think I am a chicken leg short in the bucket asking this question. It is advertised everywhere: caught using a mobile phone/iPod while in control of a vehicle brings a penalty.
Using these devices puts yourself, your passengers and other road users in danger of being seriously hurt or killed.
Then why do we still have the chicken-leg-short-in-the-bucket people out there.
The law was enacted to deter drivers from using these devices while in the vehicle, and if caught, you will be penalised by receiving a fine and loss of points.
It is time we changed the penalty; take fines out of the equation. Fines to most people mean nothing, losing your licence is a different story.
The law has been around for some time now, so there are no more excuses. Albert Willmott,
