Using Cell phone while driving

28 posts in this topic

How would they disable using a phone in a car bus etc

only for the driver ?

I do not think that is possible

 

In denmark and I think most countries if you have hands free installed it is legal to use the phone for voice

But in the PI's I am sure they will only have a horn app.

In the Phils they will just ban the phones cuz they set off bombs and distract drivers. Better to just block signals everywhere....

one of the manufacturers came up with technology that would disable cell phones when moving. 

One of the major transport companies in Australia already has this technology in their vehicles :idontknow:

One thing that is common with most third-world countries is that almost nobody has a landline phone. I would guess that the percentage of people with landline phones in the Philippines is about ten percent. Most people here wouldn't have a phone if it weren't for their cell phones. Shut down cell phone signals? That is a really hair-brained idea. Therefore, that is probably an option they will consider trying. We know how well (NOT) that worked out during Sinulog.

Even on a motorcycle???

The rest of Asia are more voice users of cell phones than the Philippines. So you don't see many on their bikes using their phones.  It is very prevalent elsewhere in the region.

isn't texting safer since you cannot text and drive at the same time? I have never seen any taxi driver texting except when it's stopped.

voice users are annoying even when they are not driving. expensive mobile service has benefits after all...
