Someone got into his car, started the engine and switched on the phone.  The 
phone logged into the network, the network had voicemail pending, and the 
driver started listening to his voicemails as he drove away from the hotel.  
Hands-free, as I understand it.
Killed a mother and two children.  Got five years for manslaughter.
Now - if you're in a accident and you have a cellphone, the police ask your 
service provider for your call logs.  If one of them is within a minute of a 
good time they can establish for the accident - six months in the pokey.  If 
they catch you using a phone in a moving vehicle - three points and $60.  If 
you commit _another_ offence (speeding, careless driving, etc.) and they get a 
phone log - three months.
Next week (starting Tuesday - be warned) out local A14 will be videoed from 
over two dozen bridges.  If you're in a car with a hands-free kit fitted - try 
not to talk to yourself.
