CI$150 fine is automatically issued to anyone seen driving while talking on a mobile phone unless it is hands-free.
In section 78 of the Traffic Act 2011, it states: “in order to use your cellular device while driving it must be “hands free” (securely mounted to the vehicle) with no more than one action of pressing a button to accept and end a call.
You are also able to legally use your phone while driving if you are calling 911 to report an emergency to police, fire or ambulance crews, especially if it is unsafe or impractical to stop and park.
Lastly, you may use your phone if your vehicle is stationary and removed from the normal flow of traffic. You cannot use your mobile phone if you have stopped at a traffic light.
