The UK government is updating laws on the use of mobile devices while driving to plug loopholes that allow some iPhone users to still use their smartphones to shoot videos while driving. Britain, like many other countries, has laws in place to try to prevent drivers from using smartphones and other devices while driving to minimize distraction. < / P > < p > according to the BBC, drivers will not be able to pick up and use mobile phones or satellite navigation systems while driving in a law change to be enacted in 2021. Drivers found to have broken the rules will have six points deducted from their driver’s license and fined 200 pounds (US $258) and may lose their license if they pass the driving test within two years. < / P > < p > the reason for the amendment is that there is a loophole in the wording of the current law, which stipulates that it is illegal to use & quot; equipment for interactive communication & quot; while driving, which is considered to refer to telephone and SMS systems. Because smartphones can be used for many other purposes, this allows some drivers to bypass the law and evade prosecution. < / P > < p > for example, a man was found guilty of using a smartphone to photograph a car accident in North London in 2018 and was convicted in 2019. Later, the man successfully appealed because it was not technically illegal to use it as a camera. < / P > < p > under the new law, drivers in the UK can still use the iPhone, but must use the existing hands-free methods, such as Bluetooth system or put the iPhone on the shelf (the principle is that it can’t be touched). In some cases, for example, when using iPhone to pay for goods in the diner, as long as the user has parked the car safely in advance, he can complete the payment operation with his mobile phone.
