Dangerous mobile phone usage

I have been holding off posting this as I honestly (or should that be stupidly) thought that the majority of people knew that the usage of mobile phones whilst driving in any road vehicle was ILLEGAL (see link below).
This means:
NO PHONE CALLS - IN OR OUT
NO TEXTING - SENDING OR READING RECEIVED TEXTS
NO TAKING PHOTOS WITH YOUR PHONE WHILST DRIVING
The only exception to that rule is if it's hands free.
We've all seen them, texting while driving or waiting at the light, holding the phone with their right hand with phone on their left ear, taking photos/videos while driving - THIS HAS TO STOP!!!
How many accidents or deaths will it take for idiots to get this through their thick arrogant, selfish heads?
If they want to put their life in danger, their choice; however, I will not tolerate anyone of these selfish little toe rags putting my life or anyone that I love in danger!!
The law has to be stricter about this now.
We as the public, need to take the bull by the horns now and report anyone we see using their phones. We know that the police can't be everywhere and that there is a shortage, so let's help them and save each other's lives in the process.
*555 is the number to call from your mobile to report any incidents on the road.
If you are driving, try and pull over in a safe area and make that phone call.
If you have a passenger in the car with you, get them to make that call.
Try to get as many details as you can to pass onto to the police i.e. type of car, colour, registration, last location seen etc ...
You won't be 'narking', you are in fact saving a life.
So as the quote goes from Hill Street Blues, "Let's be careful out there"
