Correct, no specific offence but the police can charge you with related
offences, eg driving without due care and attention, dangerous driving,
I shall resist the temptation to rant on about the British police and their
persecution of drivers in general, due in part to their reluctance to get
involved with real crime, preferring to concentrate on the heinous crime of
speeding along empty motorways at 3:30am.

I was interested to hear that there is no penalty for using a hand-
held mobile phone whilst driving in the UK. Here it's a CHF 100.- fine,
though I have no idea whether or not it's enforced.
