Checking messages at a red light.

Looking at Facebook in traffic.

Phone to the ear chatting.

You see others doing it – and perhaps you do it yourself. It might feel harmless, but so many shocking news headlines show us otherwise. It may not seem like it, but it’s been illegal to use a handheld phone at the wheel in Malta since 2003. And while the penalties for doing so are now much tougher, could you live with causing a tragic accident because you were distracted by your phone?

 

Help make Malta’s roads safer for all of us.

You Talk. You Text. You Crash.

89.7 Bay is determined to make texting behind the wheel, seen too frequently on our roads, as socially unacceptable as drink driving.

 

Remember:

 

1. Put your phone away before driving so you won’t be tempted to use it.

2. Make the glove compartment the phone compartment

3. Don't call other people when they're driving

4. Switch off before you drive off

5. Don’t text and drive
