Liam Byrne fined over car mobile use

I'm totally against the use of hand-held mobile phones whilst driving. Having nearly been run down as a pedestrian on a couple of occasions, I can see how easy it is to lose control of a vehicle whilst fiddling with the phone. Liam Byrne, the Immigration Minister thought he was more important than any road safety consideration. Being fined for such usage, he told the court he had been taking an important call on a deportation matter.

If he knew it was that important, wouldn't he think it just might take his concentration off the road?
