Attached Image France has now made it illegal to hold your phone on public roads, even when stopped on the road shoulder and with the engine turned off.

According to Le Figaro, the new rule has been set in place in an attempt to reverse the increasing number of road deaths in the country. Drivers now have to park in a designated spot to use their phones instead of just coming to a stop. The only exception to this law is if someone has had an accident or breakdown and needs to make a call or send a text.

Rule breakers can be hit with a fine of 135 euros (S$220) and some dermit points.

The latest ruling comes after the latest attempt from French authorities to reduce the road accidents. The french authorities has reduced speed limit on two-lane roads from 90 to 80 km/h.
