What is law on using a mobile while driving?
It is against the law to use a mobile phone while driving a car or riding a motorcycle. This includes sending voice mail or text messages and accessing the internet.
Devices include smartphones or PDAs.
When you are in control of a vehicle, you must not use your mobile phone, smartphone or PDA:
- to send or receive picture and text messages
- to access the internet
- to make or receive calls
This is applicable whether you are moving or stationary. For example when you're stopped at traffic lights or when you are queuing in traffic.
It’s also illegal to use a mobile phone when supervising a learner driver or rider.
