Drivers who have their phone neatly balancing in their lap are fairly confident that nobody has worked out their ingenious system.
Legally speaking, a phone sitting in your lap can still be used if you’re stuck in traffic, or if the lights have been on red for too long. (That may not be true)
Crotch texter, Peter Thape likes to stare down at his phone for ages whilst sitting in traffic, but he’s convinced that nobody has noticed this, because he thinks he may be invisible.
‘I text a bit, then look up…text a bit, then look up. Completely safe if you’re in a line of traffic,’ said Thape.
‘Although, I admit an 80ft gap does occasionally open up between me and the car in front,’ added Thape.
