Using Mobile phones whilst driving is just as dangerous whether they are handheld or not.
How many people do you see driving one handed anyway? some leave their hand on the gear lever, some find it necessary to hold the roof on.
It is not the holding of a phone that is dangerous it is the concentration on talking on the phone instead of concentrating on driving the car.
The government have will not admit it is dangerous to drive whilst using hands free as the police cannot stop every car that apparently has someone talking to themselves in it.
As for talking to passengers that is completely different, like madnoel, I stop listening or talking to passengers when I need to concentrate more.
The new law is only half way to lessening life threatening crashes
