Woman who caused Lincoln biker’s death while chatting on hands-free phone jailed."The jury rejected your account and accepted that you were distracted by using your hands free phone."
In the UK, if you're in an accident while chatting on a hands-free phone, you could be facing a prison sentence by virtue of being distracted.
This raises serious issues for individuals and, more especially, for employers, who may rely on hands-free to conduct business.
An employer who provides a hands-free, or requests that an employee use one, may find himself in the dock alongside his employee.
Lord Ross' antennae just twitched.
