If you are driving along the Motorway and your phone is on a magnetic mount playing a Youtube video (this could be a podcast, song etc.) and
the driver is not touching the device, is this illegal?

A couple of weeks ago whilst driving a bus through London, there was a woman driving a car next to me with a kiddy's cartoon showing on the built-in satnav screen, with child in front seat not even belted in! the driver could quite clearly see the screen. where's Darwin when you want him?

Built in screens can do that, they usually switch off the 'video' as soon as the car moves, or even if the park brake is disengaged (/Park on an auto).

You could get into an argument about whether they are driving when stopped of course.


Didn't Landrover have a screen that was covered with a stripy prism so the passengers could all see a video, but the driver couldn't, then the stripes that the driver sees can display something useful like what is behind...

They still do. It's fitted in Range Rovers.

And Jags (where it first appeared). Early version of the multi-media package would not allow TV/DVD on the front touch screen, audio could be piped to the front though.
