YOUR SAY: Motorists on phones putting lives at risk

THE law states that you cannot use your mobile phone whilst driving, yet you see scores of people enraptured with their electronic devise oblivious to all as they drive down the highway.

If that is not bad enough, you witness daily drivers for companies such as Australia Post, courier drivers, transport and bus drivers breaking the law and endangering the public as they continue their affair with the mobile phone.

Do these individuals realise that the public can clearly see the name of the company they drive for all over their van, truck, bus etc? Where does common sense end and silliness start?

These are not isolated cases. The road toll is high enough without drivers risking their lives and the lives of others. Think before you engage the mobile phone while driving, please!
