Stop 'hands-on' phone drivers
While this request may have to be directed to the Minister of Transport I am appealing to newly appointed Minister of National Security Jack Warner to assist him with the problem of motorists driving and talking on cell phones at the same time. After all I call Jack the Minister of Getting Things Done, one way or the other.
Am I the only one noticing that in spite of the law, many people are still driving and talking on their cell phones?
Have they not heard of hands-free blue tooth headphones? I have seen mothers and fathers with children in the car driving and talking on their phones.
Not only are they breaking the law but they are setting a bad example for the children.
Now, the real problem is that it is almost impossible to catch and charge someone driving and talking unless it is done by a police officer on motorcycle and how many of them do you see riding about looking for delinquent drivers? Or if an offender stops at a traffic light and there happens to be a police officer or traffic warden there, then they could be caught.
Unless there are cameras (that work) placed at strategic points to catch the perpetrators, no one will be caught.
The offenders fully well know this so they will continue to drive and chat until there is a solution to the problem.
Now the next question is, if people are to be charged based on photos taken of them breaking the law, will the issue have to be discussed in Parliament and approved before the legislation is passed?
If so, then offenders chat on, because you have a lot of time on your hands to continue breaking the law.
