still got to catch em , so it will make fark all difference to people behavior
Makes it slightly easier to catch 'em if you've no longer to prove that the phoney driver is using it to make a call or send a message. I hope they also outlaw the ones who leave the phone on their lap or prop it by the handbrake - there's good reason why instrument displays are mounted just below the windscreen, not by the driver's knees - and any display being mounted where it conceals part of the windscreen.

Even if the phone is in a holder the driver is still distracted .In many places of work phones are not allowed for safety reasons and rightly so.

I don't see why they shouldn't just extend it to cover any device that's not essential to driving the car or medical needs.

Probably insufficient evidence. If you had footage of the offence it would make prosection easier I guess.
