I am wanting to know if there is any type of international law such as a United Nations resolution that forbids governments from enacting legislation that requires citizens to transgress the law in the normal course of their daily activity. As an Uber driver I need to swipe my mobile phone at least 3 times with every job they send me and have been infringed because, despite being a legal operator under the transport act, this is an offence under the traffic code. I am due in court to appeal, this week. Perhaps there is an aspect of natural justice that I could cite or quote.

Not sure what you are asking but in a country the laws of that country apply.

Are you saying that you were booked for using you phone while driving? If so that is an offence. If you need to do something with your phone as part of your job, you need to pull to the side of the road when it is safe and carry out any actions with the phone while you are not driving.
