Police are constantly in the spotlight for their own officers breaking the law. Pictures surfacing online of police officers taking calls while driving always spark quite the uproar but are they allowed to use their mobile while driving?
The current law in NSW and ACT, says that drivers must not use a mobile phone while the vehicle is moving, or stationary (but not parked). However there are many exceptions to this law, for example when:
The phone is used for audio calls or playing music and secured in a mounting affixed to the vehicle
The phone is not secured but the use of the phone doesn't require the driver to touch the phone at all
The phone is used as a GPS and secured in a mounting affixed to the vehicle
The vehicle is an emergency vehicle or a police vehicle
