Another function that needs to be thought about are the various traffic related apps that seem to be proliferating. This includes ones telling you the number of parking spots available etc. Trouble is you are not
allowed to use your phone to access them unless you want to risk double demerit points.
I just hold the button on my iPhone and say 'read the text message to me'. It reads the message through the car speakers via Bluetooth. I guess by touching my phone I could get a fine, but it hasn't happened yet. I don't need to look at the phone. It's pretty easy to find the button by touch. Of course you can then reply to the text too, without needing to touch the phone.
