    a friend of mine got 3 points for holding her phone using the sat nav on it in North Wales..... its a joke, you can use a normal sat nav or you can smoke but you cant do other things lol....... not saying texting is acceptable cos its not but the rules are stupid

        Fine for using mobile whilst driving is £60 and 3 penalty points on your licence.My wife says it's the most common conviction she sees on insurance applications.

            Simple way to not lose your money... Or get points on your license...




            DON'T USE YOUR PHONE!!!! I know everyone uses there phone sometimes when they're driving, but some people are just incapable... Like the silly woman that drove in to me!

              you cant even use a phone while pulled up allot of people get caught out with that because the are still in charge of a motor vehicle so if you have to mke a call i normally pull up and get out just to be safe. I see why tho I saw a police program where a lorry driver was flicking through names in his work phone attached to the dash he look up and went into back of a few cars stationary on the motorway and killed a young girl its far too dangerous, I totally agree with this

                You could also be done for driving without due care and attention.Bigger fine,and more points.

                      I am beginning to think you may have another ID on here.

                      I cant believe this is a serious post.

                        Stupid isn't it, although I don't agree with one thing... How public do get fined and points for using there phone (I agree, it should be done) BUT, the police are ok to use there radios while driving? Surely this is the same thing, apart from numbers don't need to be dialled and obviously not including texting... Correct me if I'm wrong?

                          i think people with horses who foul the road should be subject to the same laws as dogs and their owners, nothing worse than poo on your compomotives

                              texting when driving is a big no no from me! as you need to look at the phone to write the mesg...which means not looking at the road...

                              on your phone talking is not as bad as you eyes are still on the road ! just my 2p worth !
