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...

      Citizens of 40 countries traveling to Vietnam now have a simplified process for obtaining travel visas directly from the Vietnam government. Vietnam recently introduced an e-Visa (electronic visa) application system for citizens of 40 countries. Vietnam e-Visas will allow citizens of these 40 countries to visit Vietnam for up to 30 days. The 40 countries included in the Vietnam e-Visa program are Armenia, Argentina, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Brunei, Bulgaria, Chile, China, Columbia, Czech Republic, Cuba, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Luxembourg, Mongolia, Myanmar, Norway, Panama, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Timor Leste, United Kingdom, United States, Uruguay and Venezuela. This new two-year, e-Visa pilot program will be in addition to the current Vietnam travel visa processes in place. Holders of the new Vietnam e-Visas will be allowed to arrive into Vietnam through any of the eight international airports including Noi Bai - Hanoi City, Tan Son Nhat - Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang - Da Nang City, Cam Ranh - Nha Trang City, Cat Bi - Hai Phong City, Can Tho - Can Tho City, Lien Khuong – Da Lat City and Phu Quoc - Phu Quoc Island or through any of the 13 international land border crossings. Vietnam e-Visas will cost you a flat fee of $25 USD for a 30-day, SINGLE-ENTRY visa. Your 30 days will start when you arrive into Vietnam, not when your e-Visa is approved. This visa will only be valid for a single entry into Vietnam for up to 30 days, meaning you can’t fly into Vietnam, stay for a few days, travel to Cambodia and then return to Vietnam for your flight back to your country. You can only enter Vietnam once. If you need a multiple-entry visa or want to stay in Vietnam for longer than 30 days, you can apply at www.visavietnam.ph . It is fast, cheap, easy and reliable. Vietnam e-Visa application process You will need a scanned copy of your valid passport details page and a scanned passport photo. According to the website instructions, the passport photo must be “straight looking and without glasses.” I’m assuming this means looking forward at the camera and without a smile (and nothing to do with your sexual orientation). You can apply online for a Vietnam e-Visa through this website: https://evisa.xuatnhapcanh.gov.vn/web/guest/trang-chu-ttdt. Please follow the steps below: 1.    Click on “For Foreigners.” 2.    Upload your passport photo and a copy of your passport details page. These are two separate uploads. You can’t upload your passport details page twice. 3.    Enter in all the required information. 4.    Pay your $25 USD fee and submit your application. Your fee is non-refundable even if your application is later denied. 5.    Once you have submitted your application, you will receive a “registration code.” Keep this code. 6.    At the time of this posting, the e-Visa turnaround time is approximately 3 business days. After the processing time, return back to the website and click on “Search” in the top menu bar. 7.    Enter in your registration code to search for your application to see if it was approved. 8.    If approved, you can print out your Vietnam e-Visa as proof for travel. I know this sounds a little complicated but trust me, this Vietnam e-Visa process is much simpler than the uncertainty and hoops we used to jump through. We no longer have to deal with third-party companies for visa approval letters or mail in our passports to the Vietnam consulate offices. Overall, this is a win-win for citizens of 40 countries. Travelers and it’s a step in the right direction. I’m hoping that multiple-entry visas and longer term visas will be added to this system if it proves to be successful. Disclaimer: Please understand this is a pilot program so there might be some glitches along the way. I have not personally applied for a Vietnam e-Visa through this process so I can’t test out how reliable it is. If any of our readers has any feedback or real life experiences with obtaining a Vietnam e-Visa, please share them with us in the comments section below. Thanks for reading! PhilipJ

      Took a trip down to Ho Tong Hardware to search for the NPT tap and dies that I needed. Turned out that they didn't have any in stock, but I'm not sure that the surly lady that helped me actually understood what I was looking for. A very different experience from Belmont Industrial!
