Legislation governing the use of mobile phones in a motor vehicle

This new legislation has received tremendous support and should be considered an excellent contribution to road safety – as David Jamieson (Roads Safety Minister) quoted “Missing a call won’t kill you - an accident quite possibly could!!!”

All it takes to be involved in an accident, which could be fatal, is a split second of inattentiveness. Study has proven that the use of a hand-held mobile phone whilst driving multiples your likelihood of being involved in an accident by 4 times. You cannot concentrate fully on driving whilst you are holding a mobile phone to your ear and taking part in a conversation which may be long or involved – or even worse trying to read and respond to a text message.

The legislation does allow you to use a mobile phone that is used hands free by Bluetooth™ technology or by the use
of a fitted hands free car kit.
