    Dont think they come under the mobile phone regs, however they will still do you for driving without due care and attention, we've all heard the stories about people being done whilst eating at the wheel, its the same thing, both hands should be on the wheel unless changing gear

    anyone driving around thinking that they are starsky and hutch or the dukes of hazzard should be shot not just nicked. CB ....thats so yesterday.

    and yes thats a big 10-4 its the same as having a carphone wired in to the car. you are still bein distracted from driving, so you are in breach of the road traffic act good buddy. so keep your eyes on the road, and make sure you have strapped your load and we're clear

    i've never got this!
    "Dont think they come under the mobile phone regs, however they will still do you for driving without due care and attention, we've all heard the stories about people being done whilst eating at the wheel, its the same thing, both hands should be on the wheel unless changing gear"

    the biggest distraction to a driver of a car has to be its passangers! espeecialy young children, screeming kids strapped in the back seats of cars have got to be much worse that a pieace of plastic held in your hand... but you dont see them banning them! as i said i never understand it

    I totally agree sqweaka. Its just another law made for the sake of it.
    If it's got tits or tyres, its gonna be trouble

    Wait until you pick up crashes caused by some knob talking on the phone, and not noticing both lanes have stopped at a red light. Made no effort to stop until he hit the first car. 5 in total involved; was going fast enough to smash the steering rack on the Sprinter he was driving. At least it wasn't on the motorway or anywhere else that he would have been going fast!

    See them all the time. Last one happened to me; the dozy tart was pulling out of a side turning,holding the phone with one hand, changing gear with other and (possibly) steering with her knees. Didn't even look and seemed shocked that I just managed to miss her. And I know what 4.5 tonnes of lorry in the side of a car does!

    I don't think the law is strong enough! The police can already confiscate cars for no tax/insurance etc; I reckon that they should be able to immediatelydestroy the PHONE of anyone they find talking on the bloody thing whilst driving.

    Vince,

    Pretty sure that the law allows the use of two way radios whilst a vehicle is in motion.

    Put in place so that the plod etc can communicate without being arrested by a citizen....

    CB falls into this category.

    P.
