Call a Cop!
Do these fuckwits give a damn about the danger they are putting the rest of us into?
It could be argued "Why should they care?" after all, for years drivers had non-hands free cellphones and the law to be obeyed on NOT "driving without due care and attention" and the Police studiously ignored that law and could not be arsed to follow up complaints about said behaviour, let alone do it first hand and enforce the law of the land.
No, instead the Police, who seem to forget that "Policing by consent" does NOT mean that they have to agree to get off their arses and do the job they are being paid for but instead refers to us, Joe Public, consenting to be policed by a small and unarmed Police Force, lobbied the politicians who just love creating new laws into making a law specifically making the use of a mobile phone illegal whilst moving if you hold it to your ear.
Once they had that law, the second law to cover the same offence, they promptly apparently decided to ignore that law too, despite it being one of the easiest laws ever to enforce.
IF you spot someone on a mobile phone whilst driving and they have it to their ear, just NOTE THE TIME. Stop them asap, arrest them under caution, take down their details including the cellphone number of the phone they were using (Make a test call to get that number yourself) and then let them go. Then obtain the records from the cellular provider which will "prove" the start duration and end times of the call they were making when you observed them.
OK, well have another doughnut and think about it.
