    Rant about pulling over and using a mobile

    OK so it illegal to use a mobile whilst driving but surely its just as bad pulling over on any road and simply putting the hazards on and then continue to use the mobile causing a build up of traffick behind you GRRRRRRRRRRRRR

    a build up of traffic due to a parked car is better than a build up of traffic due to an accident

    I think you have to turn the engine off before you answer, could be a bit dodgy while driving.!! (thats what the police told my son,they can still prosecute if the engine is running but you are in a layby, something to do with being in control of the vehicle ).

    Inconsiderate drivers basicaly. Wait untill you've reached your destination or buy a hands free kit. Muppets!

    Once, I pulled off on the motorway.

    The police saw me and I got arrested.

    Yes, the officer said in future I had to buy some sort of hands-free device and gave me some information on specialist websites that stock them.

    I agree pull over where it is safe but better to pull over than cause an accident
