Sorry mate, but if you want to watch TV whilst you're driving, you're an idiot and a liability.
Having it unlocked in a traffic jam would be fine. If you are just moving forward a few feet the screen goes off and then you have to be totally stopped for it to come back on again. For passengers thats a right pain.
Well let's just hope I (or anyone else for that matter) don't have the misfortune to be on the same piece of tarmac as you at the same time then. You are driving a 1600Kg loaded gun; I have seen at first hand the painful, messy, bloody outcome that occurs when people allow themselves to be distracted from their driving. I just hope to God that when it's your moment, you don't take somebody's wife, son or father with you.Well if you describe someone who has never had an accident in 15 years of driving, despite owning 5 911's, cayenne S boxster S, cayman s, cayman, bmw 330, bmw M3, bmw z4, bmw x3, merc s class, cls, sl 320, clk 270, audi a4 2.7, an idiot and a liabilty then thats only your opinion. Its the driver behind the wheel who is responsible for their driving, personally using sat nav/tv/telephone/radio etc are all equally a distraction - I don't think TV is any more or less distracting, do you not look at the screen when you follow sat nav? As I've said I'm mainly using it to listen to news, sky sports news etc anyway, and probably would not have it done, I thought the whole point of asking questions is to get productive comment, I don't think yours is mate.
Fair play, I'm not looking for a mass argument, just trying to make a point.Me thinks this thread needs a referee and I know personal misfortune may come to me by sticking my nose into this one, but hey you guys are several thousand miles away and FRIENDLY jousting adds some spice to the threads sometimes. Now both of you have valid points and agree with each other more than you think. There are many distractions within the modern auto and we should strive to minimize them while driving. Shoot in the U.S. studies have shown that people on cell phones have the reaction time of drunk drivers. And have you watched people trying to eat a Big Mac with fries and a chocolate shake in the car--watch out! How about the lady putting makeup on while driving. It goes on and on. What it comes down to is personal responsibility(novel idea here in the U.S.) when driving so lets leave it at that and move on lads.
Don't tempt me. In my line of work there are some days when Afghanistan might be less dangerous to me (I'm not sure whether I am referring to my patients or the lawyers out there)Fair play, I'm not looking for a mass argument, just trying to make a point.
Do you fancy a job in Afghanistan, Boomer?
Gosh I hate it when after I have stitched an incision up on one of my patients somehow it gets opened up again Whereas I agree we should try to keep PERSONAL criticism out of the forum as much as possible, I do think that a forum such as this is meant to allow healthy opinion exchanges. We are all passionate about something in life and may become a bit vociferous in expressing ourselves, but that doesn't mean we should stifle these interesting exchanges of ideas. Brutal honesty is just that--brutal and honest--and the rest of us don't have to agree with it. What it does mean is that when things get a little heated the rest of us bring a little rationality back into the thread and move on. So which one of you is going to be the first to tell me I am full of excrement. (Rab88 I have a tough American bison hide so fire away )OK, everyone has their opinions. What Ramy chooses to do is up to him. if you disagree, then please, keep your opinion off the forum or take it to PM.
