Drivers who are caught fiddling with their smartphone charging cables will have to pay a fine

The solution: Inductive smartphone charging is convenient, safe, and will keep you from having to pay for a ticket.

The recent decision of the Higher Regional Court for Oldenburg highlights a less noticed aspect of the ban on using mobile phones while driving: Those drivers who plug in their mobile phones while driving violate the German Road Traffic Act (Section 23 (1) of the StVO).

In justifying their decision, the judges stated that in order to connect the charging cable to the phone, the driver must pick up the device and hold it in his hand for a while.When he does this, his ability to keep both hands on the steering wheel is jeopardized.

Now you have one more reason to finally say goodbye to charging your mobile phone with cables.The alternative: An inductive charging station in the front passenger compartment.
