I know in some cars you can add into your cd player a tv screen that will watch movies and when i was younger i always wanted that thinking it would be cool to have or something, but never did it as it was dangerous of course. My mother has the portable Dvd player that goes around the head rests of the front seats while she is driving we

Oh my god. That's totally dangerous and crazy. I wondered what the man was thinking when he watch the movie while driving. He's endangering everyone on the road, including himself. Well, I had heard of people using cell phone to talk and texting while driving, and people putting on make-up while driving. However, this is the first time I heard of people watching movie while driving. It's right that he's arrested for such dangerous driving.

DVD monitor is one of the new equipment to make vehicle more customer friendly for better sales, but it do not think the front monitor is a wise offer. No driver could afford the time watching DVD in a car. Watching while driving is fatal to everybody. Maybe for the backseat passenger, some might have the interest.

That is unbeleavable it never amazes me what people do behind the wheel of their car.They show no appreciation for anyone else on the road .What goes on in these peoples heads.We just get the normal in England talking on mobile phone,eating their lunch.drinking hot drinks ,sorting the baby out ,how more people are not killed is just a complete mystery to me.No one seems to take any notice of the police or the rules anymore.It is frightening because careful drivers have to look out even more,if my husband was not such a careful driver we would have had plenty of crashes by now.Sometimes drivers just pull out and do 30 in a fifty stretch of road ,we have had to put the anchors on plenty of times and the people just carry on not even aware they have wiped us all out.Crazy.

That's pretty crazy. I think watching a movie and driving at the same time is impossible. In my area, they have passed a law against text messaging while driving. A lot of people do it and it makes the road a very unsafe place. That's the only thing I've heard about driving lately.

I have heard about watching movie while driving. Usually you can't if you have a player installed by a dealer.. One of my friend bought a portable dvd and she used it often when she have a long hawl drive. I myself won't i don't want to be responsible for accidents and i think that they should have a fail safe then when someone is driving that DVD player don't work in the front of the car!

Wow that is absolutely crazy. How can you watch a movie and be driving at the same time? Plus how does 140 kilometers/hour translate to miles per hour?
