i think it is stupid that they have banned using phones, i dont really use mine whilst driving but if i need to i will. but i think smoking whilst driving is just as dangerous so why dont they ban that?

They should make the driving test harder and if you fail more than 6 times you shouldnt be able to take the test again for like 2 yrs, that way people that fluke the test once with a nice examiner wouldnt be able to drive, if you cant pass the first 6 times i doubt you ever will anyway, also charge raod tax on petrol, and include insurance like road tax is currently, so if you dont have one your easily caught.

:D also make a special lorry lane on the m25/ build a wall, so they cant overtake, they have about 2mph advantage over the lorry infront so they will use that over the 30 miles is needed to overtake, holding up people trying to get pass both of the lorries/ cloging up the overtaking lane which
is just being used as an extra lane.

stupid point but texting whilst driving is also illegal, and if you are a smoker, you're insurance could be higher cos you are likely to drive and smoke at the same time. i also know someone who got pulled for eating a mars bar at the wheel, cos that can be classed as drivin without due care and attention.

personally i am happy you cant use phone in car, i know someone who got hit by someone using a mobi in the car, the culprit took a turn too fast, only one hand on wheel, lost it and rammed head on it my friend, totalled both cars, broke my friends legs and arm, all he had to say was "i was late for a meeting" - better late than dead i say!

I smoke a lot and use the phone a lot (generally, not just when driving) and I tell you what, I can fetch, light smoke and discard a *** using one hand and without taking my eye off the road. You can't do that with a mobile.

Also, you can grip a *** and the wheel or gear stick at the same time, you can't grip a mobile and use the steering wheel effectively at the same time, you also can't grip a mobile in your mouth if you need both hands for anything.

When you recieve a phonecall, you need to listen, concentrate and make decisions based on what you are hearing whilst most smokers, smoke subconciously, you've been doing it so long you don't even think about it.

Useing a mobile without any mod is 100's of times more dangerous than smoking. Get a bluetooth headset, they work with nearly all modern bluetooth phones, and you can answer, hangup and use voice dialling and stuff. Much safer.

[edit] PS, the what if you drop it argument is void, cause most people would take the same action whether dropping a mobile or a ***, plus theres no chance of a mobile sliding under your brake pedal.
