Letter: Mobile menace

Letter: Mobile menace

Sir: I was reading a noticeboard in Hammersmith Road in London when I was run into by a woman who was driving a motorised wheelchair while engaged in conversation on her mobile phone (a conversation she continued while I was picking myself up from the ground).

If the Government plans to prevent use of mobile phones by road users, is there any chance they could extend it to other forms of transport?
