Petition Ban the use of mobile phones in ALL vehicles while the engine is running.
Too many people use mobiles phones in vehicles whilst driving, So, to make it easier to police, I am proposing that the Road Traffic (Jersey) Law is changed to make it 100% clear that mobile phones are NOT to be used in a vehicle by drivers while the engine is running - even hands free.
The Law needs to be changed to state that you can only lawfully use your phone if you are parked in a safe place and the vehicle's engine is turned off.
The problem is lack of concentration - using a phone whilst in your car is a distraction.
