Kevin Ash please stop harping on about mobile phones. I was in the forces between the years 1971-1983 and we were always using our radios and other types of equipment while driving. I understand some people cannot drive and think at the same time, my observation and experience now is most fools who either nearly hit me or do not even see me are too busy looking or operating their Satnav.
Now tell me they are not worse than talking on a mobile phone? The idiots look at the Satnav, taking their eyes off the road to look at the route to confirm what the thing has just said to them. Now tell me that's not true? I have been with people that use the Satnav and it's a fact. The worst part is it's always as they approach a junction or a roundabout, If you do not believe me watch them without their knowledge of why. People using the mobile phone at least do not take their eyes off the road unless the idiot is messaging, and that is stupidity.
So if you feel so strongly about mobile phone use then you must also feel as strongly about the use of Satnav Units, police radios, taxi radios and CB Radios.
It's all going to the dogs this country -- Nanny State. Can't smoke can't say blackboard can't say manhole cover can't think for yourself anymore you will do as we demand or we will make a law to stop you.
Pity all this attention is not applied to Overpaid BBC Personnel, overpaid swindling Public servants,illegal immigrants and of course the dishonest law enforcement personnel.
