Samuel’s Thoughts From The Road: The proposal to ban phones in cars

Yesterday I mentioned that I had an idea for a video podcast. Today I present the first episode. The basic premise is that every now and then, when I’m on the road and having an opinion on one thing or another for you, I’ll record it and share it with you. I don’t know how regular it will be at this stage, and I’ll see what I can do about reducing the file size (255 MB for ten minutes of video might be acceptable in some fields, but it seems a bit over the top here, thankfully the YouTube version shouldn’t take anywhere near as much bandwidth).

Today’s episode is about something which would be a direct threat to this video podcast, the proposal to ban all mobile phone use in cars. In today’s episode I explain why the idea is both bad an illogical, and the likely bans on other activities in cars and on the footpath which will follow if this ban becomes law.

If you want to download the video, it’s available by clicking here.

And if you want to subscribe to the podcast there are a couple options. To subscribe like a normal podcast and have the video files automatically downloaded to your computer, you should be able to subscribe to the feed at

The other option, if you’re a registered YouTube user, is that you can subscribe to my YouTube channel.

I’ll see about getting an iTunes subscribe button going soon.
