German courts have made a interesting judgement on using Tesla touch screens whist driving.

Thankfully, not a problem in a Morgan!

I have a touch screen in the A35 and agree with the German Court, it is a distraction.

Just like a lot of the on board tech and “driver aids”. Even a multi function trip computer that offers a range of options. Who needs an instantaneous mpg output for one? Average speed readout? Why?

I’m interested to see the latest VW Golf, currently being advertised on TV.
Too many electronic functions?

Just because you can doesn’t mean you should.

I suspect the latest Uni recruits to the design departments are biased very much to CAD & 'Puter development

Is anyone brave enough to submit a review of having the better half in the passenger seat whilst driving and how safe this is. Would they have authority to ban them?


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

Heather has a touch screen in her GTI and it definitely is a distraction as were the stand alone Satnav's we have all used from time to time, I agree with the German court ruling.
