    Using a telephone whilst driving carries more than a £60 / 3 point penalty

    Just read in autoexpress that according to the AA insures take a dim view if you are convicted of using a mobile whilst in charge of a vehicle - many will load the premium and one company will not offer cover. Do you think that is overkill being punished twice or do you agree with that..:rock:

    Using a mobile now gets 3 penalty points

    I have no problem with this legislation, but does it then give the impression that it is okay to use a CB or amateur radio whilst driving? (Holding, or using a microphone) Likewise is it okay to program any type of GPS whilst driving? Then we start looking at Tuning a radio, Replacing a...
