Ever more severe mobile phone laws

By johnboy - 17 September 2010 45

Comrade Stanhope is increasingly frustrated with all of you ignoring him and continuing to use your phones whilst driving.

To that end he has made new laws so that the extent to which you ignore him is increased:

Under the laws, drivers can only use a mobile phone to make or receive a call if the phone is secured in a cradle, or if it can be operated without being touched and is not resting on any part of the driver’s body. All other functions of the phone including text messaging, video calls and emailing are prohibited.

If the phone rings while I'm driving

You can’t have your phone sitting in your lap on speaker? Hmmmmm thats Bull shint!

I’ve always wondered about drive throughs.

Some teeny Bopper pulling out of Macca’s eating a cheese burger while holding a coke and driving hmmmmm but wait thats never mentioned in the news is it? I wonder why? Hmmm Maybe becasue big billion dollar corporations own these fast food places hmmmmmmm

hmmmm, well when that teeny bopper has to break suddenly at a nearby roundabout and he was holding a large chocolate thickshake that is now over ALL the exposed fabric upholstery and it wasn’t his BRAND NEW CAR then he’d learn to never eat and drive at the same time again would he? Dam I learnt that the hard way!

Stanhope picked up an old Age newspaper. This has been happening in Victoria for at least 6 months.

They won’t fear the punishment because they don’t believe it will happen to them.

You have hit the nail on the head.
