The use of mobile phones whilst driving is on the increase despite absolute proof it can, & does, cause death & /or serious injury to victims of accidents caused by their use.

It's proposed that the maximum fine be increased from £100 to £150 - WHAT A JOKE !! It should be a MINIMUM £1000 and an automatic 12 month ban, with a 6 month jail sentence for a 2nd offence if the Government and Police are serious about creating a deterrent to such blatant dangerous driving.

And anyone who uses their mobile phone when driving on ANY public road or motorway and kills or even just injures any other person by their action should be arrested and given a serious length of time at her Majesty's pleasure immediately, no ifs, buts, or excuses, for life in many cases. This sounds excessive maybe, but these morons kill without any thought of the misery they cause to their victims families, relatives, friends, or workmates. Looking at the recent stories about those who these morons kill or seriously maim for life many are young, or old, male, female, and loved by their families. I have recently seen photos in the newspapers of the people who have died or been seriously maimed, and lots of them are very young, at the start of their lives, school, first job, whatever, and do not deserve this end to their young lives. These moronic drivers are in a relatively small country compared to many countries, and stopping places are never very far away from most places anywhere in UK. The misery these drivers cause to the relatives of their victims is never going to go away, so the families are sentenced by a moron to suffer every day of their lives, which nobody should have to suffer. DRIVE and  USE MOBILE PHONE and kill or seriously maim the innocent party, you go to jail for life in the knowledge that you will never be free again. The victims deserve at least this after losing their lives or suffering  dreadful injuries from these idiots.

The other half watches "Docto" an American health show on in the morning  anyway,yesterday on her recording they were giving away spectacles ,so what ,these are special spectacles that reduce the glare on colours in / on iPad ,iPhone ,laptop,etc etc . They don't improve your ability to see/read any better just the glare of bright blues etc from mobile devices,here's the good point they're a $250 each ,only a yank or nerd would pay that amount of money ,me if my screen was too bright I'd turn the feckin thing down !!!!!!

Bob, you are right, we obey the rules, but do not forget that our country has been in this world long enough to know that the new boys are still learning the trade, whatever that might be, and they are bound by human behaviour and lack of experience to do the easy, though wrong, thing in any situation. Self first, others never, is their motto, which explains why the world is in such a bad state...Stupid thing is though, that Man Utd had to play 11 men in their penalty area, or withing 5 yards thereof, every minute the other night v LFC. But that is another story, just thought I would mention it though!!! Berlin Wall number two....

PS: perhaps there should be a law designed so that ANYONE using a mobile phone while driving in UK will not only be arrested and finger printed when caught, but also be banned by ALL mobile phone companies from ever being allowed to use such a device EVER again, in ANY country in the world. Even if it is only themselves they injure if they do so. This could also cover mobile phone use by cyclists when using public roads in UK. BUT which government would dare to create such a law??? And yet they must, to save the innocents these morons kill or injure.

Well. we as civilians of UK are not allowed to resolve silly arguments by throwing hand grenades wiily nilly when some moron annoys us, so why should drivers, when driving , get away with little punishment when an innocent is injured or killed by the phone user when driving???? Same crime, so why not same punishment? They are evil full stop.

Whenever I see anyone on the phone whilst driving, I sound my horn repeatedly , especially when passing them on a motorway - "wifey" cringes, but I just want to draw attention to their willful, dangerous and criminal behaviour ! John (JKW)

JKW, Just make sure you have some form of self defence then,  like a couple of grenades, or more efficient, a 120mm high explosive round (and weapon) and a rocket engine in the boot....  Tom

Bob, I was advising JKW to make sure he had enough self defence weaponry to respond to the morons using their car and their mobile phone as weapons on him (JKW) because he (JKW) was trying to stop mobilephoneitis carried out by these lunes  forthwith, not advocating all out war!!!! Honest!!!!

A guy today was jailed for 10 (ten) years for driving his lorry into the back of a stationary car and KILLING the four occupants (a mum & her 3 kids) - the reason?-  he was fiddling with his mobile phone and consequently didn't see the line of vehicles stopped in front of him. With a 10 year sentence probably meaning he'll be released after 5 years, that equals 1.25 years in custody per death that he needlessly caused - one & a quarter years, an unbelievably lenient sentence, made worse with the judge saying "the driver might as well have been driving with his eyes closed". If the judge thought that, why didn't he make his sentence count, a minimum of 20 years IMO ? Reporters asked "What can we do to stop mobile phone use whilst driving ?" - it's blindingly obvious;  make the punishment fit the crime, ie, an automatic 12 month ban and a suspended prison sentence, plus, if involved in an accident, a compulsory custodial sentence, the length "inside" being determined by the extent of injuries / deaths occurring. After just a few bans & jail terms being dished out I bet the use of mobiles when driving will be drastically reduced - drivers might even be able to use their indicators again (itself a dying art these days )!!

Front page of the Daily Mail today 2nd November shows the culprits well and truly, and they could be arrested if the cops get their act together, the evidence is clear.... and the photos are all foreign drivers of HGVs going from or back to Dover . "BARSTEWARDS" comes to mind... Take a look.

Did the usual Vodafone shop etc ,nearly threw out the window . Then me thinks ,every time  Facebook notification came so did Athenry ,yep deleted Facebook ,now have silence ,can anyone tell me they've had a similar experience ,but why the "Fields of Athenry " ,could been a spit spit ( m u ) guy who sold me the phone or was a Saturday night model ????
