Phone Use Ban

Hold Your Calls,
Save Your Life

Remember

'Phone Use Ban
While Driving' Law

Takes Effect
May 1st, 2008

Days Remaining
23 Days

Regards of MOI

What do you think about this campaign? Will it help stop accidents on the road? Are you guys happy about it? Will you abide by this law or break it? - I personally think its a very good start and I will use handsfree kit when necessary. I have seen most of the people using phones while driving and they don't care about others on the road. Its like phone on your ears make one go out of senses.

i enjoy driving, and i really hate it when someone calls while so.. but the problem is when my parents call, so i usually call them before entering the car and tell them not to call coz i am in my way.

I totally agree with it, and I really hope they strictly reinforce it.

Dont worry man ! isnt there a law that forbids women from working after 8pm , any one cares? same goes to the phone law ... just hue and cry and every one will forget after a while

They seem to be serious, but . . .you know the fine is 5KD. Kind of a mixed message.

It's dangerous. It's distracting. And as a person who frequently has hilarious passenters in her car, I know that there are other equally dangerous behaviors out there. If they can eliminate just this one factor - the distraction of talking on the cell phone - maybe they can focus on speeding next?
