Mobile Phone Use

December 21, 2015

It is typical of this namby pamby government that seems determined only ever to do anything by half measures. Yesterday I saw a guy shaving whilst driving, electric razor fortunately, and today I saw a woman applying lipstick as she inched forward in a traffic queue. When you are driving you should not be allowed to eat, drink, use a mobile or anything else that detracts from what you are doing and strangely enough ......that IS already enshrined in law!!

mobile phone use; there are lies ,dammed lies , then there are statistics. government figures state that 27% of all accidents where death is caused, are caused by drink drivers, by comparison this infers  that the other 73% of accidents are caused by sober drivers, food for thought.

Yes Bob the figures are frightening ,my own thoughts now that most new cars need an Einstein to operate the array of gadgets fitted to them let alone bringing booze or mobile texting whilst behind the wheel the punishment must be appropriate to the crime ,over in Ireland a 22 year old got only 4 years for killing eight (8) in a single accident during the last World Cup ,OK it was increased on appeal to 8 years still a farce ,so we know if a car hits a body at speeds its lethal ,we have draconian laws reference guns with the misuse so why not motoring were lives are  damaged or lost ...a case in Las Vegas were someone drove into pedestrians killing and injuring multiple innocent people .......or the bin man in Glasgow ......the examples keep coming ...and now we have 24/7 Asda/Tescos and cheap booze ????????????? Oh nearly forgot Bobs comment on the rest of us drivers that don't drink/text/phone home etc , yep you baseball hats who drive like they are in an F1 car tale gating oooops that was 45 years ago ....problem is the road system was designed for horse traffic not millions of cars ,trucks,buses ,cyclist let alone pedestrians
