Tempted to Use Your Mobile Phone Whilst Driving? Dont Do It!

Likely you or someone you know has been involved in an accident due to using a mobile phone whilst driving. So, if we know that this is dangerous, then why is it still a problem?

There is more than one answer to the question. Some of us are busy people. We feel we need to use every minute we have to accomplish business, personal or professional. Some of us, on the other hand, just figure we can easily talk while we are driving and figure we are good at multi-tasking. We don’t think that we could ever be the cause of an accident because of our phones.

It indeed is tempting to use your mobile phone whilst driving, but no one is immune to accidents happening due to distraction by the phone. This is the very reason that using a hand-held phone is illegal when driving or supervising a learning driver. If a police officer finds that you are guilty of doing so, you can face fines, penalty points on your licence and even possibly disqualification from driving or from riding.  For most instances of being caught using your mobile phone while driving, the police officer will issue you a citation and your penalty at the same time. However, there are times when they may require you to go to court to face higher fines or harsher punishment than what they are allowed to give.

So, the best solution to the temptation of using your mobile phone whilst driving is simply just don’t do it! But, if, you were caught in a moment of bad judgement, using your mobile phone whilst driving, what can you do to redeem yourself? How can you avoid having to pay out so much money in fines and getting penalty points on your licence? Give us a call immediately. We will work your case in such a way that we defend you so that your punishment is the very least possible so that you can learn from your misjudgment and move on.
