There is a law in the UK that says you can't listen to music in your car. There are rules that apply to anyone with a cell phone. People who use music streaming apps like Spotify and Apple Music are most likely to be affected by the rules.
Driving fines of up to £200 could be issues to people who use their phones to change the song - it comes before the changes to the Highway Code, which will change how people are ranked on the road, making it safer for people who are less able to drive.

“More and more drivers are being caught out on the roads by unexpected fines. The new changes to the Highway Code will place more responsibility on road users and it will be a criminal offence to disobey them. More publicised offences, such as making phone calls whilst driving, are already deemed unacceptable in our society but simple things such as throwing a cigarette out of a window are what we see on journeys every day, and often without consequence. We are reminding road users to be considerate of other road users and obey driving laws for their own safety and the safety of others whilst travelling.”
hat more and more drivers are getting fined for things they didn't know about. It will be a crime to break the new rules in the Highway Code, so people who don't follow them will be in trouble.
"Making phone calls while driving is already a big no-no in our society, but simple things like throwing a cigarette out of a window happen all the time and don't get much attention.
"Road users are being told to be considerate of other road users and follow the rules of the road for their own safety and the safety of others while on the road.
People should read on for easy-to-ignore rules already in place because a whole new set of codes is coming into play.
Stopping outside of the white line at traffic lights.
Getting caught crossing this line can cost you up to £100 and even get you three points on your licence.
Advanced Stop Lines, or ASLs, are lines that cyclists can use to stop.
Motorists who crawl over the line and into the box risk getting both a fine and points.
