Using mobile phones when driving has been the subject of much discussion in recent years. But how far are the governments and the law willing to go on the issue of on the move communication, and its road safety impications?
What is the difference between using a mobile phone in a dahsboard cradle, and talking to passenger in the car? both use the same amount of concentration, and are passengers not as much of an equal distraction as a telecommunications device?
How many times have you sat in your car. Its rush hour traffic, and you have picked your kids up from school, music practice, football, gym etc. They're having an argument in the back, whilst your spuse is in the front seat trying to calm them down. Is this not a mass distraction?
The roads today are busy places, and you will not be able to travel a whole mile without suffering a distraction, from both inside or outside of the car. So where do we draw the line?
The government orgainsations that run the advertising to deter against using a mobile phone project some powerful imagery of death and destruction, at the hands of the mobile telecommunications devices. But how many telecommunications companies help support this venture? Have you visited a mobile shop that seeks to actively prevent the use of mobiles whilst driving?
The use of bluetooth technology, in the form of headsets has allowed scope for this, but we still see driver using their mobile phones stuck to their ears whilst driving. The situation is theoretically a political and legal minefield.
Are you a responsible driver, and do you pull over to use your mobile in order to answer it?
