So interestingly.. My entire MMI system could be seen as a phone.. Or maybe even the car itself as it can make calls using its built in SIM...

I think you will be okay, unless you class either as hand-held?

You could say the car is 'hand-held'. After all, if he's in control of his car, he will be steering it, and thus will be holding it. ergo 'Guilty me Lud'.

Default Touching phone

Hi,

Interesting points here...

One case involved a man reaching to his BlueTooth earpiece to answer a call. Not the phone. Done. Sorry man!

Can the divice AutoAnswer? Voice activated manual answer? No? Careful then...

A wider point is that although car enthusiasts (especially A8 folks) can handle a phone, cup of coffee, 4 wheel drift... LOTS of drivers cannot. Oh, and can we? always?

I want to stop those drivers hitting me / mine / you / yours. I don't know how to stop them without(probably...) competent people losing their rights to do something...

What I am concerned about is the LACK of policing of mobile use, bad driving, in fact anything that a camera system cannot do... We all must see stuff we WANT them doing for; don't we???

Robert
