You see it every day on the Irish roads. Motorists with the steering wheel in one hand and a mobile phone in the other.

Under Irish law it is now illegal to use a mobile phone while driving unless it is a loudspeaking handsfree device. Motorists who use hand-held mobile phones face an €435 fine, three months' jail and a six-month driving ban. The ban also applies to truck and other heavy vehicle drivers.

Every day you can see plenty of examples of this law being flouted.

To be honest it’s a bit of a joke. What’s the use in having a law if it’s not going to be enforced?
