Motoring Law – FAQ

Can I prosecuted for using a mobile phone when stopped at traffic lights?

Yes. If the device is hand-held, even turning the mobile phone on is “using” the device which contravenes the current legislation. The fact that you were stationary in makes no difference, as you were still “driving” the car…. In order to avoid prosecution, you should only use a hand-held phone when the car is parked and the engine is turned off.
