Sir: I have just read Paul Spencer's letter on mobile phones (28 May). It occurs to me that 30 years ago a virtually identical letter could have been written by an opponent of stronger legislation on drunken driving: "Any legislation to ban use of alcohol by motorists would be another example of knee-jerk lawmaking on the back of quite justified public sympathy for an innocent motorist killed. The point about this recent case is that the driver was not just drunk; he was also careless. Many thousands of innocent beer drinkers should not be penalised for the few who are guilty".
