Its illegal to watch when driving but not a problem if your not watching itI can't find anything regarding British Law on this ??, but in the U.S. it's certainly not legal to install a T.V. or video screen within view of the driver.
Taking into consideration that Yanks are off the wall - If their Law says NO, would the U.K. allow it.
I don't think so.
It must be in the small print somewhere, ?Its illegal to watch when driving but not a problem if your not watching it
I think so, it would probably depend on reception in the area you were in and potentially needing a booster aerial. I have a mate who has a TV tuner in his car so I will enquire!Regarding TV in a car that is moving, would it display a decent quality picture anyway?
If its not in your line of sight it wouldn't be a problem.After looking at a couple of systems, seems to be that the main screen picture is disabled when the handbrake is off, but external monitors can still show the pictures - at least those systems with dual zone functions can anyway.
Looking at getting a sun visor screen to hookup so that can show dvds for the passenger whilst driving. But still trying to clarify whether this would still be counted as "visible to the driver" and thus illegal.
If it is hooked up to the passenger visor you clearly arent going to be watching it as a driver, but I suppose technically if you made the effort to crane your neck it probably still is visible! Seems very much open to interpretation..
Don't think watching the Sat Nav is quite as interesting as trying to watch a movie ?Is this quite a commonly done thing then? Does seem a bit strange that you are allowed to have a sat nav on the screen - which could distract your eyes from the road just as much as anything else - but nothing else on whilst driving
haha, but both take your eyes away from the road..Don't think watching the Sat Nav is quite as interesting as trying to watch a movie ?
Sorry your honour, I crashed my car whilst watching porn on the motorway at 70 mph......... etc. etc. :worms:
