    Q395: What about using my phone when I am held up in traffic?

    The use of a mobile phone without a hands free kit is not allowed whilst driving. Driving includes times when for whatever reasons you are held up during the journey, for example, traffic jams and traffic lights.

    The police do not advocate driving whilst using a mobile phone at all as they are distracting.
