Mercedes driver's protest against the ban on mobile phones while driving
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.
