#21 – Mobile Phones

#21 – Tuesday, 11 July 2017 – Mobile Phones

There’s a common myth that a driver can use their mobile phone while sitting in traffic or at traffic lights – and it’s incorrect – so drivers, when thinking of using your mobile phone, remember the advice from MC Hammer “Can’t touch this”.

Don’t be that person who uses their mobile while driving, you face a fine of $300 and 3 demerit points – and worse, with the inattention you risk crashing and seriously injuring or killing yourself or someone else.

It is illegal to touch your mobile phone while driving this includes having your mobile sitting on your lap and touching and part of the phone for GPS.

The ONLY time it is legal for a driver to use their mobile phone is if it is mounted within the vehicle and can be used WITHOUT touching any part of it.
