Re: Phone use (again )

1. Using a mobile phone in a car is not the same thing as using a mobile phone while driving. 2. Where is it ruled that using a mobile phone in a car, whether driving or not, is a human right? 3. Signal jamming would prevent ALL mobile phone use, even the perfectly legal stuff by the car, passengers...

Re: Phone use (again )

Multi-talking is a myth; humans cannot concentrate on more that one thing a time. It may look like they can but in reality they are just switching attention, very effectively, but that is all that it is. It is time-slicing and some people are much better at it than others. Oh dear, were you doing s...

Re: Phone use (again )

Is there a significant difference between having a conversation using a hands-free phone interface and having a conversation with someone who is sitting behind the driver? the general consensus seems to be yes - because an in car conversation co-party will automatically pause when they see the driv...

Re: Phone use (again )

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-49320473 I know we've done this before and even had similar research posted, so interesting to see it in the news. Personally I think more legislation is a waste of time since enforcement is none existent, and in any case I'd rather see drivers prosecuted for DWDCA (if...

Re: Phone use (again )

The only reason that hand-held mobile use is illegal and hands-free is not is because one can be policed and the and the other cannot (let alone defined), otherwise they would both be banned. Any law that cannot be enforced is bad law. Holding the phone is but a small part of the problem as it is th...

Re: New Members.

There are members here who use music / advanced driving analogies. Apologies, I'm not one of them (I can drum a bit, but lose count if it involves anything more than 123 4, 123 4 ... ). The music analogy is from the perspective of the viewer/listener. You can listen to two artists perform the same ...

Re: Block Changes - How Many Do You Miss?

I think Horse's unhappiness is with the order of system and smooth in the original list. Safety System Smoothness Speed Sparkle (you may sacrifice any lower item for a higher one, but not the other way round) IIUC, he believes that you should sacrifice being systematic in order to be smooth.

"This isn't illegal. If anything this is more safe than most of the drivers around here".

Really? Someone needs a reality check.
