In Rajasthan, talk on phone at wheel, lose your licence

NEW DELHI: Talking on the mobile phone while driving in Rajasthan will now cost you your licence. The Jodhpur bench of Rajasthan high court has directed the traffic police to obtain photographs of such violators and forward their credentials to the regional transport office for cancellation of driving licence.

The HC passed the order after the ACP (traffic) told the court that a large number of four- and two-wheeler drivers used cellphones while driving, which was not permissible under law and caused accidents.
