What hope is there of enforcing the law on using mobile phones while driving while just this week I saw a Police Officer on duty doing just that? Even while working as an on-call GP I didn't do that, but would pull in as soon as I reasonably could to answer the mobile while stationary.
And also saw a driving instructor smoking in his car while driving: he may not have had a pupil on board but surely this is contravening Scotland's anti-smoking law, not to mention having one hand partially incapacitated by holding the cigarette.
In the meantime I'll probaly get done by the traffic mafia tomorrow, for parking on a single yellow line while helping my son to move into his new flat - or worse still, having my nearside wheels on the pavement so as not to obstruct the flow of traffic!
Who was it said " The law is an ass"?
