A technical fix to lawless motorists?
In general terms, this country is still very law-abiding and long may that continue.
Yet, time after time, we read about road accidents where the driver wasn’t wearing a seatbelt or was gas-bagging on a mobile phone. Just who is this small percentage of the population who are above the law of the land?
God knows, our police forces are stretched beyond belief and would probably far prefer to be investigating serious crime rather than picking remains from a road accident.
As an unashamed technophobe, I still wonder a) whether it ought to be possible for a simple electronic gadget to be fitted to the ignition system that fails to respond unless one or both front seat passengers are belted up; and b) whether a mobile telephone will be unusable unless it is turned off and deposited in the glove box.
