The French were banned from using the mobile phone in the car. Even during a stop

News
The Supreme Court of France has forbidden drivers to use a mobile phone while driving, stopping and staying in a car with a muffled engine. A fine of 135 euros is provided for violation of the law. This is reported by the newspaper Le Figaro. Drivers can not just stop to check the phone. Instead, they must park the car in a predetermined place. An exception is made only in the event of an accident or breakdown. Opponents of the new law consider it short-sighted and suggest that the government, on the contrary, should encourage drivers who stop to use the phone. The ban was one of the last measures in the fight against the increased number of road accidents. Earlier, it was decided to reduce the speed on two-lane roads from 90 to 80 kilometers per hour.
