Headset Fines

So the police have something new and useless to add to their fines such as using your phone while your driving. I don’t mind this law at all, since I have been using bluetooth for over 6 years now, before even Sony merged with Ericsson. They can’t seem to fix our lights, at least install sensor traffic light systems, stream line our fine payment process, fix our roads, or fix the 777 hotline so that someone answers the damn phone.

Just for everyone’s information, the police can fine you directly and indirectly, so it is up to the discretion of the police officer. If they see you talking, all they need is your plate number, car make, and color. So they can fine you if you are moving or if they stop you. I wonder how long this is going to last.

On another note, headset sales has gone through the roof, so much so that there is a current shortage in Kuwait for almost every kind of headset.

  1. FCC did not raise their prices… read that in the newspaper :-)

  2. direct and indirect are history, all fines are direct now – since indirect ones were abused

    headset sales, well we need around 3m headsets for all people in Kuwait, maybe 2.9m if we exclude those who already has it? Talk about marketing

  3. I just stopped using the phone or keep it on loudspeaker.. I lost my headset and can’t find one for my phone in any of the shops… its cuz i have a “special” phone as one guy told me… shoooooooooooor!!

    Actually we had a seminar here in KPC about that new law, and they said that they can’t fine you indirectly..
