Please answer the question honestly. I have kept the poll private to prevent 'flaming'.

I used to, but haven't since it was made illegal and it really annoys me to see people doing it even now.

Re: Do You EVER Use A Hand Held Mobile Phone While Driving?

Whoops I misread the question.


Before the invention of affordable handsfree kit
yes. But not since having one, (+7 years.) no.

Is that a yes or a no? (I put no)

Re: Do You EVER Use A Hand Held Mobile Phone While Driving?

I try not to.

This poll might have got a more honest reply if it had been worded 'Have you.... ' rather than 'Do you ....'

I worded it exactly how I meant the question to be asked...

I have in the past and no doubt I will in the future but like you I try not to.

Re: Do You EVER Use A Hand Held Mobile Phone While Driving?

I have done in the past but for the last couple of years I've turned my phone off when I'm driving, so there's no temptation to answer.

Re: Do You EVER Use A Hand Held Mobile Phone While Driving?

I have in the past, not a blatant call but I've fiddled with it while stopped at lights etc, however I realised that even not concentrating while stationary can be dangerous so now I just leave it until the journey's finished, or if I have a passenger I get them to deal with it.

I have in the past - but since getting the 147 I use the inbuilt phone in the connect+ sat nav thingy
I got a pay as you go SIM for it and just put my normal mobile on redirect to the connect+ when I am driving

Re: Do You EVER Use A Hand Held Mobile Phone While Driving?

No - have always had car kits and now have B&M. It always amazes me that it's twonks in Range Rover, big Beemers, Porches and the like that can't even afford an earpiece.

Re: Do You EVER Use A Hand Held Mobile Phone While Driving?

Probably because they can't really afford the car. Bought it with their equity no doubt

Re: Do You EVER Use A Hand Held Mobile Phone While Driving?

Have never used a hand-held while driving - not even picked one up.

But then again, I have never owned one.

Re: Do You EVER Use A Hand Held Mobile Phone While Driving?

I have

But rather than hold it on my ear, I've put it on loud speaker and placed it on the tunnel.

If my phone rings when I drive, I usually don't pick it up but sometimes I did.

Re: Do You EVER Use A Hand Held Mobile Phone While Driving?

All the time ... whilst driving round the M25 at 120mph, flashing my lights and swearing at anyone who won't get out of my way!!!

Let's be serious no one is going to answer that question honestly given that is illegal to do it in the UK ... we're all too busy looking down on people from our moral high ground
