Japanese National Police Agency to make it more expensive to talk on mobile while driving.
Posted on 30-Dec-2003 11:54 | Tags Filed under: News



According to recent reports on Wireless Watch Japan, Japanís National Police Agency is planning to carry out a major revision of Japanís Road Traffic Law next year that will toughen restrictions on mobile phone use while driving.

The current law says that drivers in Japan are already prohibited from using mobile phones when behind the wheel, but police are only allowed to penalize those who are a threat to others.

According to some sources, the Naptional Police Agency wants to increase the fines up to 50,000 yen (USD465/EU 375) if they use their phones to talk or send e-mail while driving even if they pose no danger to other vehicles or people.

This is similar to current UK laws banning talk-and-drive. In this article we explain how it works in UK and list Bluetooth headsets reviewed on Geekzone before.
