What do people think of driving with a mobile. I’m slowly changing but have, in the past, been known to use it whilst driving.
What’s worse is that I really hate it when I see others do it. Even more so if I’m on my bike or motorbike. But, in reality, I don’t think the penalties are enough to stop it. Â£60 and a few points is hardly going to ensure you don’t do it.
A new report from Jabra has highlighted the cost of doing it outside of the UK. In short, if you do it, don’t go to Portugal. It will cost you nearly 500 quid (â‚¬600) and Italy is nearly as expensive.
The full map is available here.
I have to admit I’m slightly surprised that it’s so much more in Italy than in the UK. Especially as Top Gear once described the Italian approach to road safety as, “good hospitals.”
The report also shows where to go if you want to get away with it, Russia. The fine is just Â£7 there. Lets hope Moscow has good hospitals.
