Phones are strictly prohibited
According to the Indian motor vehicle act, using a phone while driving or riding is strictly prohibited. In fact, even headphones are not allowed while operating a two-wheeler in India.
If you’re someone who uses headphones while driving or riding by placing them under the helmet then it is illegal according to the Bangalore Police. Even putting earphones under the helmet is illegal even if you’re not using them for a call. Even playing music through earphones while operating an automobile is illegal.
Similarly, if you put a mobile phone under the helmet, the police will issue a challan for doing just that. Even using Bluetooth devices is prohibited. As per the law, using any type of electronic gadget is illegal while riding a motorcycle or two-wheeler.
listening to music through headphones or Bluetooth devices while riding a two-wheeler is illegal. However, people travelling in the car can play music but after making sure that the music is not causing any disturbance to the fellow motorists. Using headphones even for music is a violation for both the car drivers and the two-wheeler rider.
The Police say that one can use Google Maps while driving or riding a two-wheeler. However, one cannot hold the phone while driving or riding while using the maps. One needs to install a phone holder that will allow one to position the phone to view the maps. Holding the phone while driving or riding is strictly prohibited.
Distracted driving can cause major accidents
Looking at the phone screen or talking while operating a vehicle can be very distracting. It can also lead to numerous accidents. It is best to keep the phones away while operating a vehicle or at least stop completely at a safe place to use the phone.
