    Default Reminder not to use mobile phone while driving

    "A taxi driver has been jailed for three years for killing a young soldier on home leave from Afghanistan in a crash.
    L/Cpl Jonathan Gouldsmith, 24, from Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, was hit by a taxi while walking on a night out in Llanelli in April 2011.
    Steven Carey, 29, was driving late at night when he took his eye off the road while making a call on his mobile."
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-s...wales-18930215

    When will the message get through (no pun intended), that it is murderous to use phone behind the wheel - especially "texting" but indeed all hand held phoning.

    when driving at night it's hard to see anyone on the road til the last minute. But still no excuse being on the phone while driving.

    this is in a town centre though, but we don't know the street so can't make judgements about the pedestrian's actions.
    driving through any town at night - it is the duty of the driver to watch the road carefully.

    Your probably right, but im guessing if the taxi driver had been paying attention to the road and not texting he might have seen him. If a sober pedestrian walks across the road in front of you are not supposed to run them down either.

    Somebody should tell all this to the tw*t in the audi who sat on my bumper....when he wasnt weaving across the road...on the way to work this morning!! Mobile phone in his left hand, waving his right hand in the air showing his disgust at what he was being told no doubt.
    Pity they werent telling him to get of his bl**dy phone!
