Re: 'Highest'?

A fair question :) So perhaps it's a fair question for me to ask back how much AD training takes place in the circumstances you detail, or even equate to anything close? And, to be fair, if all those other drivers thought the same way, you would have been no quicker ;) My point, I suppose, is that ...

Re: 'Highest'?

Surely definitions of highest / standard / qualification all needed?

Agree with Mr Toad though - def. higher which is off the public radar...

Re: Speed

There is definitely a rise in cars that sit comfortably at speed and isolate the driver - meaning that perhaps some drivers are less aware of their speed?

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 )

if my phone is in the boot - and wirelessly talking to the head unit to push apple car play onto the head unit - am I using the phone or the head unit... You are using both.

I agree - but I don't think that you can legislate for...
