PULLING OVER ONTO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD TO ANSWER OR USE YOUR MOBILE PHONE CAN BE HAZARDOUS TO YOUR LICENSE AND HIP POCKET

IN THE ‘BANANA REPUBLIC’ OF QUEENSLAND AUSTRALIA YOU CAN BE SET UPON BY POLICE IF YOU ANSWER OR USE A MOBILE PHONE WHILST YOU ARE STATIONARY IN YOUR VEHICLE.


Fraser Coast [Hervey Bay] police ambushed your truly when using a mobile phone whilst stationary at the side of the road.


Their arguement was that the motor was not turned off.

Further to that it was not parked it was said by police???

The matter is to be defended as it is an unfair application of a law that was designed to stop persons from using mobile phones whilst driving and we have all heard of accidents happening in the process of dialling, texting & driving etc.


Doing the right thing by pulling over to talk on a mobile phone as the TV adverts tell us to do seems to hold no weight with the law here at the Fraser Coast Queensland.

In addition there is a loss of 3 points against your license???

Don’t think you are safe when you pull over onto the side of the road to use or answer your mobile phone.

One sees people all the time pulling over to do just that. It seems one has to turn off the motor and park there…or you cop a $300 fine and lose three points off your license.

These are serious consequences for an over fanatical police application of a law here in sunny Queensland

Have the police become parasitic in nature to raise money for the states coffers?

Not a good look to gain the peoples trust in police.

Violent criminals get off with a slap on the wrist, whilst this happens.

Do police in other areas do the same thing to extract revenue from the travelling public?
