Police are gathering the information by contacting telcos after an accident to check whether the driver was using their phone at the light blue mandala savanah iphone case time of a major road incident, Senior police officials are now campaigning the Queensland Government to include driver inattention in public safety advertising materials, In all Australian states, drivers caught using a phone without connecting it to a hands-free device will have three demerit-points deducted from their license, plus be issued with a fine, All phone use is included, including taking photos or having a phone on speaker resting in your lap, It also includes use of a phone when the vehicle is stationary, but not parked, like at traffic lights, P-plate drivers are not allowed to use phones at all, including hands-free devices..
How do you deal with phone use in the car? I have a rule that I never answer calls or messages while driving, except in emergencies, when I pull over before calling back. Do you use a hands-free device? If so, let us know which one and why in the comments below. New road fatalities statistics show that up to one third of car crashes in Queensland are caused by drivers using mobile phones.

Well, after 48 hours I'm pretty sure it did, It just looks and feels a lot better than the 4S (which I owned until Friday), Thinness, in my book, is the foundation for coolness, But thinness isn't just an aesthetic bonus; it can be practical too, In this case, Apple stretched out the 4S just enough to allow for a bigger screen, while making it lighter and easier to hold, Let's quantify that, The two-toned back plate is a nice touch too, Not to mention that the metal-clad light blue mandala savanah iphone case sides look better when there's about 0.7 inches shaved off..
And the front is more attractive too. The ratio of display area to non-display area (e.g., where the home button is) is greater for the 5 compared to the 4S. So, my first impression is that the iPhone 5 seems to be a successful physical design. But let me close with a cautionary note. The physical design of the last Apple product I bought, the third-generation iPad, was a disappointment. I agree with Raymond Soneira of DisplyMate Technologies that the resulting design was plan B for Apple. Though it has a wonderful Retina display, it's noticeably thicker and heavier than the iPad 2 because of display assembly compromises Apple had to make. A newer product -- particularly in Apple's case -- shouldn't be thicker and heavier than the older model.
