Petrol vs. cell phones; why the balze; WATCH
All petrol bunks display prominent warning boards. Mobile phones should be switched off by drivers who are refuelling, is one of them. But you hardly see people adhering to rules. But the Guntur incident, where a petrol station was burnt down, due to mobile phone being on, is a wake up call. The friction when mobile phone catches a signal from the cell tower could ignite petrol. That is why it is recommended to be very careful while refuelling and make sure that mobiles are switched off.
