France bans drivers from using mobile phone even when vehicle is stopped

Waze For Android Auto France bans drivers from using mobile phone even when vehicle is stopped

However, French officials believe even that might be too unsafe.

There will be some exceptions and that is only if you are in an accident or your auto has broken down that you are allowed to pull over and use your phone. Previously, the law was that if anyone is circulating in traffic, it is illegal to use a phone. Though that law now encompasses one major clarification: the definition of "circulating" has changed. Even if you pull over to the side of the road, which in the U.S.is considered to be the preferred option if a call needs to be answered or made, you could find yourself fined 135 euros ($167 USD) and have points added to your driving record.

The decision came after a driver appealed a fine he received in 2017 which punished him for using a phone while he was parked at a roundabout with his hazard lights on. Though it clarifies the exact place where the drivers must stop to take a call, at the same time it is potentially penalizing them for being responsible enough not to use the phone while driving. That being said will this deter people from driving and texting or calling?

This latest ruling follows an appeal against a fine from a driver, who parked the vehicle at a roundabout with hazard lights on to take a call (totally irresponsible), according to Alphr.

France, a country with a well-deserved reputation for insane driving, has introduced new laws to try to stem an accident rate that has been slowly rising after decades of steady decline. Just last month, in another attempt to tackle the problem, the French government reduced the speed limit on two-lane roads from 55mph to 50mph. Speaker systems, however, are permitted.
