Mak­ing hand-free calls while driv­ing is not il­le­gal, but dis­cour­aged by the High­way Code. It states: ”You must ex­er­cise proper con­trol of your ve­hi­cle at all times. You must not use a hand-held mo­bile phone, or sim­i­lar de­vice, when driv­ing or when su­per­vis­ing a learner driver, ex­cept to call 999 or 112 in a gen­uine emer­gency when it is un­safe or im­prac­ti­cal to stop. Never use a hand­held mi­cro­phone when driv­ing. “Us­ing hands-free equip­ment is also likely to dis­tract your at­ten­tion from the road. “It is far safer not to use any tele­phone while you are driv­ing or rid­ing find a safe place to stop first or use the voice­mail fa­cil­ity and lis­ten to mes­sages later.”
