Mobile phones

Can I use my phone when driving?

Mobile Driving

The States of Jersey have created a separate offence in its own right, concerning the use of mobile telephones whilst driving. Previously to this offence, drivers could only be prosecuted for the offence of not being in proper control of their vehicle.

It is now an offence to hold a mobile phone whilst driving:-

Article 50 (1) Road Traffic (Jersey) Law 1956

‘If any person who is driving a vehicle on a road holds a telephone in any way while the vehicle is in motion, he shall be guilty of an offence under this article.’
