Motorists on their mobiles: GEM mobile phone code for on the road

GEM Motoring AssistGEM Motoring Assist considers the mobile phone to be the most dangerous distraction on the road and produced a leaflet detailing a safety and courtesy code for motorists and mobile phones in conjunction with the National Campaign for Courtesy.

GEM CEO and National Campaign for Courtesy vice-chairman David Williams explains that the solution to this widespread problem is elusive: “in truth, most road safety professionals, police and the public have such mixed views…there could be more enforcement, but that is so costly and police numbers are being cut. Another option is bigger penalties, but culprits have to be caught first.”
