    before 1st december, you can do what ever you want with a mobile phone while driving....

    including making calls and texing....

    ..althought the goverment advised you pull over first.

    as of the 1st of december it will be ilegal to talk on or play with a hand held unit.

    you can still talk with a hands free kit and the government advises its safes to have one fitted in your car.

    it carries 3 points and £1000 fine every time your caught.

    Ah, thank you, I've been listening to the news all day and was very confused. It wasn't very well explained.
