So, back in Britain at the present time, it seems mobile phone use and driving has been identified as a huge no-no. In the light of a number of high profile court cases following tragic and fatal road traffic accidents, the Transport secretary has proposed some Continue reading “Mobile Phones – Don’t Talk and Drive”
