GAI warns talk on a cell phone while driving - is strictly prohibited

When speaking on the mobile phone human reaction slows down for one second. So drivers have three times more time to respond to a complex traffic situation. As a result, the braking distance increases by about 25 meters. However, most driversdoes not pay attention to such "trifles". Do not use the phone while driving, because almost all the drivers, with few exceptions, tend to the effect of switching attention from driving the conversation. Attention is focused on the lane and peripheral information is ignored. According to the rules of the road, drivers strictly prohibited barkstuvatysya communication devices holding them in hand (except for emergency vehicles drivers during their urgent job task). Responsibility for violation of the prohibition to use the communication devices holding them in hand, is defined by Article 122 of the Code of Ukraine on Administrative Offences and therefore punishable shtrafom from 425 to 510 USD. If this is an emergency situation arises, the penalty may increase to 850 hryvnia, and the offender may be deprived of the right to drive vehicles for a period of 6 to 12 months. However, the law does not prohibit using the device hands free, because the driver is able to drive, usingboth hands (wired and Bluetooth-headset, headphones, etc.). Remember, arrogance and irresponsibility on the road not often leads to fatal tragedies. Press Service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs UGAI Ukraine Ivano-Frankivsk
