Premier Comments on Use of Cell Phone While Driving

The Honourable Danny Williams, today said that he acknowledges that he did use a cell phone while driving yesterday to take an urgent call from the office.  He said that he will pay the associated fine if the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC) deems it appropriate to issue a ticket.

�Despite the fact that it was an urgent call, I acknowledge that it was inappropriate to talk on my cell phone while driving, and I certainly accept the associated consequences,� said Premier Williams.
