Using the phone while driving
 
I have noticed in our place that many people still answer their phones while driving and sometimes check on messages when the car stops even if there was already a law in our place to use a headset or not to answer/use phones while driving.

Are these kinds of drivers still in your place?

Yes, i've seen people do this even though it's illegal. They don't seem to realise how dangerou sit is. I won't even use a handsfree in my car...I get too distracted.

People still do it. Usually, it's not the talking on the phone that worries me, it's the dialing and messing around with buttons that requires people to take their eyes off the road that I'm concerned with.

That's what worries me a lot. My husband just can't have his phone ignored even when driving just because his mother from abroad calls from time to time and I am afraid that it might affect him negatively when driving.

I still use my phone sometimes when I'm driving, although I know I shouldn't. It's just so darn convenient!

I answer from time to time as well, but try to avoid making calls without a compelling reason. I've also been known to end a call because I'm getting into the car.

I don't use my phone while driving, it seems that most of my near accidents are usually with people who are holding a mobile in one hand, drives me mad.
