    I was wondering the other day, is it illegal if say your passenger was holding you mobile to your ear whilst you talked and drove the car at the same time, sort of hands free I suppose.

    Don´t know there Ed, but here, starting the new year will be illegal to use a cellphone while driving....no matter if you have hands free, parrot, etc....Supposed to distract you while driving, which in a sense is true, not that I´m in favor of this but I guess you have to be 100% focused while driving.

    Is it anymore distracting than listening to the radio?

    I used to drive with a microphone in my hand half the day yrs ago with constant chatter going on as the jobs were dispatched.

    Isn't it time we were all issued with grid iron armour and all knives and forks be made of plastic, it just shows they're not doing the job of running the country if they have time to think these things up.

    Correct, but only if your driving is deemed to be dangerous or erratic.

    Just try proving your driving was not either dangerous or erratic, you don't have a hope in hell.
