Mobile phone legislation

IAM RoadSmart recently responded to the government consultation on closing loopholes in the mobile phone legislation. We supported all their proposals to make it illegal to take pictures and access the internet on a hand held phone while in control of a vehicle. There had been cases where drivers had proved that they were not using the phone for communication purposes when they were taking pictures and they escaped prosecution. The changes will be confirmed later in the spring but should hopefully put an end to dangerous practices such as filming crashes.
