How does that Sonny Curtis song go again?

"I fought the law and the law..."

Well, one driver decided to take on the law today - to protest against the ban on mobile phones while driving.

While traffic flowed through Dublin, this mercedes driver, while safely parked up, had a point to make.

With a massive red phone strategically placed on the dash of his car, he played along for the cameras.

Gardai are currently conducting a nationwide operation targeting motorists who use mobile phones while driving.

Drivers caught texting and using mobiles or smartphones, even if they are on a hands-free kit, will be given a mandatory court summons and a fine of up to €1,000 instead of just penalty points under new road safety regulations.
