SatNav danger
« on: Friday, 25 August, 2017 @ 04:08:41 »
Using your mobile phone as a SatNav is illegal, drivers are warned

Motorists who use their mobile phones as SatNavs risk being banned from driving, police chiefs have warned, as millions prepare to take to the roads for the big Bank Holiday getaway.

Tough new penalties, which came into force in April, were intended to clampdown on drivers using their phones to make calls and send text messages while at the wheel.

But as the Bank Holiday exodus gets underway, drivers are being warned that the strict laws around mobile phones, also extend to using them as SatNavs.
