Yes, seen it too and agree. I also think wearing a hoodie when driving (hood up obviously!) should also be made illegal, too much side vision is lost and Iíve seen it where you turn your head and the hood just stays still so you end up looking at cloth!

Having read the posts after my AI comment, perhaps all is not lost? Artificial or not, it has to better than none at all.

No point in making it illegal though - there's nobody to enforce it!

Very true. You hear stories of burglary victims not even getting a visit from the police, yet if someone upsets someone on Twitter they’ll find the resources to stamp on that!

You are more likely to get locked up for speeding than burglary these days, and you only need to do it once.

But if you do it in a stolen car whilst out of your tree on drugs you'll not even get a fine.

Re: BMW drivers won't like this - or maybe they won't care!

I also tend to keep my cars a long time

My Last Grand Vitara just missed getting to the moon (which is 238,000 Miles away) in terms of mileage

My local dealer started referring to as Apollo and telling the rest of their customers about it

It was a sad day when the gearbox went and it was not economic to repair.. so the next day I bought another .. 11K on the clock at 3 years old

Regards
Andy

Time will tell ...

It's already up to 41K and I intend to keep it for another decade

probably the biggest reason it would not is retirement - that will save me something like 250 miles a week
