Life is too pre­cious to take a call while driv­ing

Coventry Telegraph - - YOUR VIEWS -

MS Fion­nula Hainey high­lights the re­sults of ’Op­er­a­tion Tram­line’ (Nov 9) in which War­wick­shire Po­lice found many peo­ple driv­ing while us­ing mo­bile phones, thus dis­tract­ing their at­ten­tion from the road. The same would no doubt be true in the West Mid­lands.

We have all seen ve­hi­cles be­ing driven in that way, and it is as un­nec­es­sary as it is dan­ger­ous.

If a call is re­ally ur­gent, there are al­ways places where a driver can safely pull off the road.

Life is very pre­cious and I hope that ir­re­spon­si­ble driv­ers will be shown that they risk hurt­ing oth­ers as well as them­selves. Well done, the po­lice! Coun­cil­lor David Skin­ner (Con) West­wood ward
