Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents Slam Sadiq Khan

Sadiq Khan is in hiding. He ran away from journalists who doorstepped him this morning and is refusing to comment on the pictures of him using his phone behind the wheel. Presumably to avoid incriminating himself further; the Tories have called in the coppers and it seems Khan is too cowardly to ‘fess up. The usually media hungry Mayoral candidate is ignoring everyone from the BBC to his local paper.

Meanwhile, Kevin Clinton, head of road safety at the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents tells Guido:

“Using a mobile phone while driving is a significant distraction, that substantially increases the risk of the driver crashing, and injuring or even killing an innocent person. Politicians should set a good example – everyone should switch the phone off while driving. Calls and texts can be returned when the driver has stopped in a safe place.”

“They Sadiq him here, they Sadiq him there, those journalists seek him everywhere. Is he in heaven or is he in hell?”

UPDATE: The RAC are also unimpressed:

Using a mobile phone at the wheel of a vehicle on the road has been against the law for more than 10 years, yet everyday people can be seen using them. More needs to be done to make this offence become as socially unacceptable as drink-driving. Hopefully a high profile accusation like this will serve to raise awareness of the issue and make people think twice about using their phones while driving.”
