The new phone and battery

It is widely recognised that driving whilst on a mobile phone increases the likelihood of a fatal car crash by 123%, however, spotting when somebody is on the phone is a difficult task for the police.

Mobile Phone manufacturer Seamens have come up with an ingenious solution to the problem by putting the microphone and speaker on the back side of the phone, and increasing the brightness of the phone's display such that it will glare out of the side window whenever it is in use.

"Basically," said Birmingham based Carl Fone-Warehouse, spokesman for Seamens, "if you're on the phone and driving there will be a tell-tale pool of light out of the drivers side window."

Opponents to the new scheme have put up a number of objections, including the dazzling of other motorists and the battery life of the new three hundred candle display will be so poor that the phone would need recharging after a two minute conversation.

"Mere details," said Fone-Warehouse. "I'm sure our boffins will come up with solutions before you can say 'Upgrade your contract'."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
