In this country it is illegal to use a mobile phone whilst driving. The studies show that you are four times more likely to have an accident in this situation. Those figures probably relate to just talking on the mobile. I've seen numerous people texting whilst on the freeway. That opens my eyes.
You can imagine how astounded I was yesterday to see a police divisional van pull into the police headquarters with the driver on his mobile phone. There were at least two passengers and everyone was in a uniform. Karl O'Callahan, our police commissioner, this is something you should hear about. Three law enforcement officers with one breaking the law and two doing nothing about it. What is the common man supposed to do in this situation?
