Il­le­gal to use phone if car has stopped?

Coventry Telegraph - - YOUR VIEWS -

I AGREE 100 per cent with any con­vic­tion for us­ing a mo­bile phone while ‘driv­ing’.

But why is it an equal of­fence to pull over safely and use your phone to call or read a text with your en­gine run­ning? Yet it is per­fectly le­gal to pull over with en­gine run­ning and read any printed ma­te­rial you like in pa­per form, lis­ten to the ra­dio or heaven for­bid, speak to some­one in the car. Hmm.
