(a)  the vehicle is stationary in a road related area, and
(b)  the phone—
(i)  is functioning as a payment device to enable the driver to pay for goods or services that are required to be paid for in the road related area, or
(ii)  is being used to display an electronic coupon, voucher, card or similar article that requires the body of the phone to be held in close proximity to another device located in the road related area in order for the article to be used or redeemed, or
(iii)  is being used as an electronic device that enables the driver to enter another road related area or land adjacent to the road related area.
