New Swedish Driving Law to Effect Amateur Radio

Sweden's national amateur radio society, the SSA, has written to the Government to point out the unintended consequences of mobile phone driving legislation on radio amateurs

A Google English translation of the SSA post reads:

We have previously written about the ban on the use of mobile phones in conjunction with driving on February 1 -

In a letter to the Ministry of Food and Transport, SSA wishes to draw attention to the fact that the wording of the new legislative text may have had unintended consequences not only for us radio amateurs but also for the transport industry.

SSA believes that the new law should be formulated so that it is clear that the prohibition does not apply to the hand microphone to a vehicle-mounted communication radio.
