Ooooops. Decimal point in the wrong place. So much for my GCSE maths. Message to self : don't do mental arithmetic at midnight :-)

Anything that might constitute "driving without due care and attention" or not being in full control of the vehicle can be an offense - and rightly so. Even fumblig with a car radio or inserting a CD or eating, chatting etc. can result in reduced attention. A grey area, but with clear guidlines. As far as car-radios are concerned, high-tech DAB and FM radios are incontestably the safest. 3G-streaming might well become a viable option in future car-radios, but would be far less safe via a phone.

The BBC is no longer what it once was, very very sadly. Government could levy a modest digital tax, a fraction of which could fund public service, ie objective, independent information, education, culture etc. Entertainment could be demand-led funded by subscription and/or advertising, as now via existing commercial services.

However, I do not hold out hope that vested interests will allow anything along these lines to evolve...
