Jeremy Clarkson mobile phone.

All over the front page of the Daily Mirror,Jeremy Clarkson pictured
driving on the M40 with a mobile clamped to his ear.
Has he got any idea about the carnage that can be caused whist
using a mobile whilst driving?
How many times have you been cut up or narrowly missed having
an accident because of some stupid,selfish prat phoning whilst
driving.
I would have thought a person in his position would be setting a good
example,but no I guess he thinks he is above the law.
I hope the police pursue this,prosecute him and make an example of
him.
Rant over!

Re: Jeremy Clarkson mobile phone.

Dreadful business - does it say how many people were killed? Or how bad the inevitable accident was?

Not that using bluetooth headsets is any safer.

Switch it off when you get in the car, no phone call in the world is so important it can't wait til the end of your journey

I'll stop using my fully integrated, legal
phone kit when everyone else on the road stops:

o Turning to speak to passenger
o Turning round to slap their kids
o Lighting up
o Putting on make-up using the
rear view mirror.
o Drinking alcohol at all if they are going
to drive.

Re: Jeremy Clarkson mobile phone.

I regulary use my phone and often text...

I have only had a few near misses, only once have I swiped a car knocking off his side mirror, also caused one guy to swerve off the road...

So can not see that it is any worse than when I drive intoxicated after a couple of bottles of wine.

It does make me laugh when people are so judgemental...

mandatory for most people out of a
night here.

Your phone kit may be legal, but driving without due care is not, and if you have an accident whilst on the phone, you can bet that will be a very strong line of investigation by plod.

Talking on the phone, hands free or not, is a major distraction whilst driving, proven. In cases, doubling reaction times.

If you think your call is that important, go right ahead.

I prefer to pick up my calls when i'm not in charge of a 1.5 tonne moving missile.

I get your point, but a couple of Pastis
or 3 glasses of wine could have a similar
effect IMHO and the legal limit is higher
here.

I hope everyone is teetotal when behind
the wheel because if not it may be legal but
it's dangerous!

Re: Jeremy Clarkson mobile phone.

Look on Page 5 of the Mirror one day next week for the apology on getting it wrong. It's beyond me why people still buy and believe the red top papers.

Re: Jeremy Clarkson mobile phone.

The story claims he was pictured on the phone doing 70mph.
Is it me or is that a picture of a stationary car?

I think he was actually on the phone in a traffic jam. Still technically illegal, but morally a big issue?

Re: Jeremy Clarkson mobile phone.

And also the sheer hypocrisy
of journos who, when they go
after celebs like this, themselves
don't use a phone at the wheel,
drink, do drugs etc. I'm sure.
