SIR - While I find the use of hand-held mobile phones when driving completely unacceptable, I must take issue with the 'Hands on approach' letter (Herts Advertiser, August 6).
Although "mature people and ladies" may not shout if you confront them (although I'm not convinced about that), they are certainly no less likely to drive whilst using a mobile phone.
Indeed, the only person 'In court' for using a hand-held mobile reported this week (page 12) was Nicky aged 45 - surely 'mature' in years if not in behaviour, and perhaps also a 'lady'.
I've lost count of the number of yummy mummies in their 4x4s, and middle aged men in their executive cars, that I've seen driving while holding a phone.
You may also want to watch:
These are arguably the worst offenders: if they can afford cars costing well in excess of �20k, I'm pretty sure they could afford a hands-free kit. What is needed is a zero tolerance policy by our police force here.
Yummy mummies would soon stop using their phones if they thought that they might lose their licence and have to walk their children to school!
