Prudie, thousands of people think they're above this particular law. I suspect Beckham's made the news because he was unlucky to be caught: there are a lot of idiots out there. Whether you'd be better off seeing him or Prince Philip coming along the road towards you, I really don't know.

LJ, I don't think anyone's ever decided to drive it like Beckham. I imagine 99% of the country have never seen him driving with or without a phone; if he's a role model it's on the field, not on the A1.
Well done society, you have well and truly stuffed the rich ***.....you can now sit back with a smug smile and feel all holy.

How many of you have sed your phones in the car and got away with it?
Yes, he should have had points taken off his licence and the proceedings conducted in the normal way, but this is sheer gloating....
Jealously is a terrible thing.

prestigious people should be held to high standards.
spath - people are always complaining that there is one law for the rich and another for the poor; you seem to be advocating there should be one punishment for the rich and another for the poor.
No gloating from me, the only people he is a true role model to in this type of incident are his children, he's admitted it and taken the punishment.

I disagree he should be expected to have higher standards than me or mine.

I have never worried about there being one law for the rich and another for the poor. However, i do think anyone in a political, or inspirational position should be held to very high standards. For example if the pope got a speeding fine, or was arrested for assault, it would discredit his religion. I feel when a politician or a a person with an OBE faces similar situations, they also put their credit and surrounding officials on the line.
I'm not gloating and I'm well aware of how many people use their phones while driving, I see them every day. There is absolutely no excuse for anyone not using hands free. He is in the public eye, a hero to some and knows he will be spotted wherever he goes - so why do it, he's not that thick?
I doubt you'd see Phil coming towards you, he favours the t-bone approach.
I'm not gloating and I never use my mobile when driving. It is turned off and locked in the boot. Not goody-two-shoes just something I do.

All of our cars have Hands Free built in, don't see the problem, silly man.
Something I never do. He got caught, he pleaded guilty, sentenced, job done, but he shouldn't be held to a higher account because he's 'prestigious'. Justice has to be blind, otherwise it's not justice.

Jump in car,
switch on Bluetooth, takes seconds, job done.
/he's not that thick?/ *ahem*

Sorry, too easy. Because it's a monumentally stupid thing to do.

But seriously, he did it, got nicked, got punished.
No sympathy. Hands-free is hardly unknown.
It’s a fair cop guv. Driver required, enquire within.
// so why do it, he's not that thick?//
That's a matter for debate.
