Mathew Dearnaley reports at NZ Herald:
Former North Shore mayor and senior policeman George Wood says he did not realise he was breaking the law by taking a cellphone photograph while driving across the harbour bridge. …
He believed he would have been within the law had he used a standard camera, which would have been harder to operate while driving.
He is correct. Absolutely legal to take a photo on a camera, just not on a cellphone.
This shows the stupidity of a law that targets just one sort of device mobile phones. The law should focus on all distractions, not just scapegoat cellphones.Tags: cellphone use in cars
