In February 1, 2018, it became prohibited to drive with a mobile phone in your hand. You are not allowed to talk on the phone without using a hands-free device, write text messages, surf the web or do anything else with a mobile in your hand while driving.
Driving with one hand while using your mobile phone with the other hand is associated with very big risks. Studies show that it is especially dangerous to write text messages while behind the wheel, as it causes you to take your eyes off the road and focus on something other than your driving. The same is true for surfing the web, playing mobile games or updating your social media behind the wheel.
