Get your hands on an Airframe
Kenu Airframe Portable Car Vent Price: €25 Rating: ***
Anyone paying attention last week knows that using your phone in the car is about to be cracked down in an unprecedented way. Looking at the new rules, it appears that the key offending element is the physical use of one's hands.
This apparently means that using your phone to make or take calls, or to dictate messages and emails by voice (in a 'hands-free' fashion) is still okay. In this context, if you simply buy a holder such as Kenu's Airframe, you can apparently avoid penalties under the new regulations.
The new rules remain very incomplete, leaving many elements up to the individual discretion of gardai.
